LES PAUL
Chasing Sound!
(Koch Vision)

 

When people look back on the 20th century music, one DVD they’ll be sure to want to check out is Les Paul - Chasing Sound! From his humble beginnings as a jazz guitarist and arranger to his pioneering inventions of the electric guitar and his sound on sound work to his current status as the official elder statesman of the electric guitar—it’s all covered on the 2007 DVD release of Chasing Sound! Interviews with B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Tony Bennett, Steve Miller and so much more only touch the tip of the iceberg. Anyone who still only thinks Les Paul is a guitar, should invest the mere dollars involved in purchasing this definitive DVD on the history of 20th century guitar recording and innovation. The DVD documentary—a modern PBS classic—is worth the price on it’s own but the extras make it essential, including Les and his trio doing their thing at their Monday night at the Iridium, interviews with Les, duets with Keith Richards, Chet Atkins and more topped off by totally classic clips of the Les Paul & Mary Ford at home TV show from the ‘50s. The final chapter of Les and his mom celebrating her 100th birthday will leave you in tears. www.redhotred.com / www.kochvision.com
