Let’s Hear It For Les (1): Jeff Beck and Imelda May
At the 52nd Grammy Awards, Jeff Beck and Imelda May performed a version of How High The Moon as a tribute to legendary guitarist and tinkerer, Les Paul.
Although bit of a jazz standard, the best known recording of How High The Moon was made by Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1951 and spent nine weeks at the number 1 position in the billboard charts.
Here you can see Jeff and Imelda performing a very nice version of the Les and Mary classic…
And, if you want to get an idea of how the original sounds, here are Les and Mary themselves.
