For The Love Of George Tour 2024
George Harrison was a fan and friend of Robin Nolan, one of the world’s leading authorities on Gypsy Jazz Guitar. Harrison even named him as one of his favourite guitarists!
Nolan has a new instrumental album being released by the George Harrison’s label ‘Dark Horse Records’ recorded at Friar Park studios. The album is a gypsy jazz approach to some of Harrison and the Beatles most famous tracks and was recorded on three of George’s famous Beatles guitars....
The Gibson J160E which has the distinction of being the only guitar used on every Beatles album, the Spanish Ramirez as famously heard on 'And I Love Her' and the 12 String Rickenbacker 360/12 used by George on the bulk of the 'A Hard Day’s Night' album.
This is the first time these guitars have been recorded since the 70's, an exciting prospect for George Harrison fans as well as lovers of hot jazz guitar.
