Album Description

SAMOIS FAIRE (The Hot Club) is George Cole's first gypsy jazz recording and all songs are original compositions. Released in 2007, it features George on guitar and vocals. About George Cole: Breakneck acoustic guitarist George Cole inhabits a musical world all his own.... a world in which Django Reinhardt, The Ramones, Artie Shaw, Nat King Cole and Doc Watson get equal billing with Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Willie Nelson and the Great American Songbook. Cole currently occupies the guitar chair for the David Grisman Quintet and has two releases on Grisman’s highly regarded Acoustic Disc Label. George was guitar teacher and mentor to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt of Green Day. George Cole, a San Francisco native and BAMMIE award winner brings an expertise to his guitar playing and singing that is filtered through Rock and Roll, Gypsy Jazz and All things American. Cole is a composer, lyricist, and highly skilled arranger; his current projects include The George Cole Quintet Riverside Drive Redux (acoustic string/swing ala David Grisman Quintet), The George Cole Orchestra (7-16 piece big band), The Guitar Professor™ instructional video series with accompanying books, and recording an all new solo record.  ACCOLADES “George Cole is a major guitar talent who plays everything from gypsy jazz to rhythm & blues. It’s been a great experience playing my music with him and he’s helped me take Dawg music in many new and wonderful directions. He can sing too!” - David Grisman "George Cole was more than a guitar teacher to me. He was a mentor that talked about great music, great songs, good taste, and everything in between. I feel grateful and lucky that he showed me how to express myself with a guitar" - Billie Joe Armstrong "George Cole, guitar guru at the forefront of style" - Anthony Sauro, Stockton Record  Joe Armstrong "George Cole has a sound that incorporates some of the finest elements of '30s/'40s-era European and American music. Cole's excellent Django-style guitar work and his band's enticing instrumental and vocal harmonies make them a must-see for any fan of vintage jazz." - Art Thompson, Guitar Player Magazine LINKS WEBSITE:  https://georgecole.net/ FACEBOOK:  @georgecoleofficial  https://www.facebook.com/georgecoleofficial/ TWITTER:  https://twitter.com/GCgeorgecole INSTAGRAM:  https://www.instagram.com/gcgeorgecole/ MUSIC SPOTIFY: https://open.spotify.com/artist/6SFblWpKpHsKUT08HIkqId GEORGE COLE DISCOGRAPHY - RECORDINGS Bixou Bixou ‘Bixou Bixou’ (2019) George Cole ‘LIVE!’ (2015) George Cole Quintet ‘Riverside Drive’ (2010) The Hot Club ‘Samois Faire’ (2007) George Cole "George Cole" (2004) GEORGE COLE AS BAND MEMBER, SESSION MUSICIAN, OR GUEST ARTIST “David Grisman Sextet”, David Grisman Sextet (2016) “Egg (over Easy)”, Lee Seung-Hwan (2003) “Everyday Real”, Christie McCarthy (2003) “A Ride Up the Mountain Where Miracles Live”, Glassbrick Boulevard (2002) “Steady Fready”, Fred Horn (1999) “Forever Blue”, Chris Isaak (1995) “Slipaway”, Jerry Shelfer (1992) “Beatnik Beach”, Beatnik Beatch (1986) “At the Zula Pool”, Beatnik Beatch (1986)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
