Jeff Beck

 

continued

When he comes to the Michigan Theater on March 31, Beck won't be playing metal, jazz, or electronica. He'll be doing something completely different: going back to his first love--Les Paul--and taking a singer and her band along with him. The singer is Imelda May, a sultry Irish chanteuse with a taste for rockabilly, and the band is the Imelda May Band, a turbocharged outfit with a hot horn section and a tight rhythm section. Together, they'll be performing "A Celebration of Les Paul," including the signature tunes the master recorded with his wife, Mary Ford: "How High The Moon," "Vaya Con Dios" and "Mockin' Bird Hill," plus such golden oldies as "Walking in the Sand."    (end of article)
