Known as the longtime bandleader for NBC's Late Night With David Letterman — and, later, CBS' Late Show — Paul Shaffer first received training in the classics. But, thanks to rock 'n' roll, he grew up to lead what Letterman has called "the world's most dangerous band."
Also a composer, performer and director, the versatile Shaffer is a force to be reckoned with. On this episode of Piano Jazz from 1988, he plays the standard "All The Things You Are" and teams up with host Marian McPartland for a performance of Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely."
