Hello Beautiful People!
Today we have an absolute gem to share with you. Here is Jeff Healey with the legendary Les Paul jamming on ‘How High The Moon’ live at the famous Iridium Ballroom in New York City back in 1997! The clip is courtesy of Chris Lentz, Les’ friend, photographer and personal assistant.
Dig fellow babies DIG!
Wow… I gotta say, that my friends was pretty damn great…
An important part of my job is to seek out bits of Jeff’s history that have fallen between the cracks, gone unseen… and wonderfully, new rarities are constantly being unearthed. It’s so great to still be happily surprised by things like this great clip turning up unannounced. This fantastic performance left a goofy grin on my face all day.
Special thanks again to Chris for choosing to share this one with everyone.
Be excellent to each other. See ya real soon…
Here’s another little bonus gem Chris just dropped on us. Jeff and Les, ‘On The Sunny Side Of The Street’ at Fat Tuesday’s 10/3/93… Dig!

Never knew that happened. Wow! Ty
That clip was just amazing. He always has such great joy in playing that you can’t help but smile and laugh!! Thanks for sharing that!
This clip was amazing to watch. I didn’t know Jeff was so versatile. Ugghhh…and then I look up Abram Wilson only to find out that he passed away in 2012 at 38yo due to colon cancer. Unbelievably unfair. Thank you for sharing this clip — it made my day!
Wow, this is great! Jeff got to hang out with the legends I see! 🙂 He looks so happy here! Id be happy also! To the family God Bless! Thanks! for sharing the memories! From X generation Brandon! Keep on rocking! 🙂
This just made my day! Laughing and crying a little bit at the same time. Wonderful!! Thank you! 🙂
Love Jeff, he is the best!
Ran across the appeal to have Jeff remembered on Canada’s Walk of Fame. Going to show a film here in CA to a group that shows why we should have a Canadian style healthcare system. So, it’s great to know that Jeff got such great healthcare in Canada and that he was also remembered on the Walk of Fame. I started on this journey today playing some music my late ex-husband recorded onto a Zune for me before he died from cancer related to exposure to Agent Orange and I was listening to his tunes – particularly enjoying the Jeff Healey tunes and decided to share some on FB. So, I ended up here now. Time to walk the dog; but, thank you for keeping this going. The Les Paul share is fabulous!
forever my hero…..
Its moments like this that makes one s life brighter .
Les was the one person who inspired me to pick up a guitar at a very young age. And Jeff, most inspiring with his unique playing position, and sense of touch since he can’t see. Love this video!
