Les Paul's TrioNovember 15, 2013
Les Paul was an American jazz, country and blues guitarist, songwriter, luthier and inventor. He was one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar, which made the sound of rock and roll possible. The Les Paul Trio was a Monday night staple at The Iridium on Broadway in New York City.
Since Les Paul’s death in 2009, his Trio – guitarist Lou Pallo, bassist Nicki Parrott, and pianist John Colianni –has carried on his legacy, performing every Monday night with special guests that have included guitar heroes from a variety of genres, including Jeff Beck, Steve Miller, Ted Nugent, and Robert Randolph.
Les Paul's Trio is part of New England Arts & Entertainment's Autumn Jazz Series at the Palace Poli Club.
