Paul McCartney's Live Kisses (Episode #3801H)

KQED 9: Fri, Sep 7, 2012 -- 10:00 PM

At the forefront of the rock 'n roll revolution that changed popular music forever in his early career with The Beatles, Paul McCartney has continued to push boundaries for over 40 years as a solo artist, a member of his second group Wings, and an award-winning composer for classical and dance. His latest adventure is "Kisses on the Bottom," a collection of standards beloved to McCartney since childhood, along with two of his own new songs, "My Valentine" and "Only Our Hearts." Produced with the help of Grammy Award-winning producer Tommy LiPuma and Diana Krall and her band, "Kisses on the Bottom" is the first record in McCartney's historic oeuvre to feature him almost exclusively on vocals. GREAT PERFORMANCES joins McCartney for an intimate concert recorded at the historic Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, featuring performances of such standards as "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," "It's Only a Paper Moon," "Always," "Bye Bye Blackbird" and more.
