What a great time! Lou was an absolute gentleman, with his delightful wife and friends, joining us in the studio today! Great music and stories!
Just an FYI: Lou Pallo played with Les Paul for 30 or so years. He currently leads the Les Paul Trio, which plays every Monday night at The Iridium in NYC. He plays Wednesdays at Ruperts in Riverdale, NJ.
He is the 15th person to have a Gibson signature guitar. It is a thing of beauty and with the P90 and Dirty Finger pickups is perfect for jazz, blues, good ol' rock and roll or damn near anything.
He is currently working on a Les Paul tribute with a batch of friends (Slash, Keith Richards, Steve Miller, Gibbons, etc). Keep your eyes out. It is being recorded on 2 in tape and is being worked analog. It is also being limited release on vinyl! The first day the vinyl is available, I want it! There is also a documentary being put together.
As Lou was leaving he mentioned coming back with a bass player! I, for one, can not wait!!!
It was indeed an honor and a tremendous amount of fun having Lou Pallo in-studio! Thank you, Lou.
