[CD cover]

Keyboardist and musical chameleon Paul Shaffer rose to fame as late-night star David Letterman's sidekick and bandleader/musical director. Shaffer's late-night band, known from 1982 to 1993 as the World's Most Dangerous Band on NBC, is today called the CBS Orchestra and features guitarists Sid McGinnis and Felicia Collins, ex-Parliament-Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell, bassist Will Lee, and drummer Anton Fig. In addition to accompanying the wide array of musical guests on Letterman's show, Shaffer has released occasional albums under his own name and contributed his expertise to various other projects.

On the 2CD release The World's Most Dangerous Party, Paul Shaffer and his "party boys of rock'n'roll" do a cover of The Band's "Chest Fever" on disc 2.
