Dedicated to Les Paul who made one of the most beautiful musical instruments in the universe !

R.I.P Les Paul

Recorded somewhere Between 1996 and 2002

McPartland mentions Paul's gig at Iridium during the program.

"It takes your whole life, because you're constantly thinking up new things," Paul said in a backstage interview at Iridium Jazz Club, where he has commuted from his home in Mahwah, N.J., almost every Monday night since 1996.

"I think the standard is still very high, with people like guitarist Les Paul. He doesnt play any piano, but why does he have to?" - Marian McPartland

Thanks so much for this. I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Paul about three years ago and he was a delight. Great music and funny stories in-between songs. He will be missed.
