A true guitar hero

Another jazz legend passes. My big regret is not getting a chance to see Les Paul at the Iridium. I heard him play “How High the Moon” on the drive home…

Close your eyes and listen. Remember what I said about jazz the other day? Les Paul had a standing gig at Iridium well into his 90s. Still playing as he did in the video. The vitality of the music–no matter what age you play it–stands the test of time.
