"Les Paul: Live In New York City" is an intimate performance from a music legend, featuring Les Paul & His Trio, and duets with Steve Miller, Keith Richards, Jose Feliciano, Dave Grisman, Sonya Hensley, and others. The special captures a raucous and unadorned Les Paul in 2005 at the Iridium Jazz Club, the subterranean joint where he worked the nocturnal chaos like the vaudevillian he was at heart, to the delight of audiences privileged to experience his talent.
