The timeless recording is co-produced by Les' long-time sideman, Lou Pallo. After close to 40-years of performing with Les Paul, weekly, Lou Pallo has invited close friends in multiple genres to help him pay homage to their friend and mentor, preserving Les' spirit through a collection of jazz and blues standards adored by Les himself. Through the filming and recording process plus artist interviews and rare Les Paul footage, we learn about Les' later years and what it was like to work alongside the iconic guitar legend.
