What is in the Robin Nolan gig book?

edited December 2009 in FAQ Posts: 917
The Robin Nolan gig book includes chords and heads. Paul and Robin have carefully edited nine songs from the six books' catalogue of 68 Play-Along songs. They then added a fresh selection of 17 jam and Samois-proven Django tunes, giving The Gig Book a whopping
total of 76 songs!

The seventeen new Django songs include:

+ Blues D'Autrefois
+ Confessin' That I Love You
+ Danse Norvegienne
+ Dinette
+ Festival 48
+ I Love You
+ I've Found a New Baby
+ Moppin' the Bride
+ Oriental Shuffle
+ Place de Broukere
+ Rose Room
+ Some of These Days
+ Swingtime in the Springtime
+ Three Little Words
+ Topsy
+ Undecided
+ You're Drivin' Me Crazy

These are classic Django and Gypsy numbers, many receiving regular play-time at Django djam sessions. For one reason or another they have not found their way into the Play-Along series. Their inclusion in The Gig Book is a welcome addition indeed.

The nine songs "dropped" from the list include:

- Bar del Pi
- Icelandic Folksong
- Latcho Drom
- Luna Tango
- Manha de Carnaval (Black Orpheus)
- Mediterranean Blues
- Out of Nowhere
- September Song
- Summertime

  • No. Thats not really a gypsy jazz standard. You might find it in a book in a different genre of music...

    does the gig book show usable chord voicings or is it just lead sheets?

    Yep - each song is a two page layout with a tab head on the left and a "grille" on the right with chord diagrams below that.

    No CD. You have to get the play-along books for that.
