Live Kisses follows the live performance of Paul McCartney’s “Kisses on the Bottom” Record, a jazzy collection of songs and standards that influenced him as a young boy. 
In addition to the former Beatles’ soulful croonings, there are guest appearances like Diana Krall and her band, as well as The Eagles Joe Walsh, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, John Clayton and others.

Kisses on the Bottom, which won a Grammy, was introduced to the world via a live iTunes webcast. The feed was directed by renowned Swedish music video director Jonas Ǻkerlund, working with longtime Cinematographer Pär M Ekberg.

The event was broadcast live, in coordination with Live Nation, from Capitol Studios in the historic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, outside of which, earlier in the day, McCartney had received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The album itself was recorded in that very studio, where such greats as label artists Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat “King” Cole, among others, had recorded many of their biggest hits.
