To honor what would have been the 95th birthday of Les Paul, guitar virtuoso Jeff Beck -- backed by the Imelda May Band -- put on a show last summer in New York's Iridium Jazz Club, where Paul played every week for the last 14 years of his life. That performance of Paul's music was filmed, and the resulting movie -- on DVD and BluRay -- will be released Feb. 22. But if you hold out until March 24, you can see Beck and the Imelda May Band perform Paul's songs for yourself at the 9:30 Club as part of "Jeff Beck's Rock and Roll Party."
