Hey, just getting back into the music. I see that I missed Nolan’s gig book. Any chance that it’ll get reprinted? Sounds like it was a pretty great fake book.
iReal Pro offers 61 Robin Nolan style charts without melodies. The Gig Book offers around 76 songs with melodies. As much as Robin promotes workshops, song books, and other products, it seems strange that the Gig Book isn't available. There must be some licensing difficulties, perhaps with Paul Meader who worked with Robin compiling the Gig Book. I use my copy several times weekly.
I'd say the best single gypsy jazz book ever printed. I doubt it will ever get reprinted.
The "Gig Book" had 17 songs that the original books didn't have and the original books have 17 songs the Gig Book does not have.
I notice someone sold a bootleg: https://www.ebay.com/itm/334163980878?hash=item4dcdb9b24e:g:1gUAAOSwoB1hU4lA Not cool.
I didn’t realIze you can print out the charts from iReal. That’s a great suggestion, thank you!
That’s nuts someone is selling a bootleg copy.
Another great resource is the Django in June Compilation Book which has 60+ songs, notation and tabs. I don't see it on the Django in June web site, but I can send it to you if you like. There is a 24 Jazz Standards doc available at https://djangoinjune.com/get-ready/
