Album Notes
Cole's superbly crafted and melodically sophisticated
original music reminds us of the best of George Gershwin,
Johnny Mercer, and Cole Porter. His highly stylized approach,
technical mastery and fast and furious guitar playing is in the
tradition of Django Reinhardt. George's original music includes
crooning vocals, a gift for comic gab and romantic duets with his
female vocalist. Cole's music suggests a hot sultry evening in a
Parisian nightclub in the 1940's and the sophistication of a
technical music master. The mix of high energy guitar playing,
soaring violin flights by Julian Smedley, and propulsive "le
pompe" rhythm guitar style creates a dynamic musical
experience. George Cole has just returned from playing with
Keely Smith at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco. He’s had sold
out shows at Carnegie Hall in New York and The Freight &
Salvage in Berkeley. He dazzled audiences at The Grammy’s
Showcase most recently.
George Cole is the band's lead vocalist, guitarist, composer
and producer. He's toured with Joe Walsh of the Eagles,
recorded with producer Roy Thomas Baker (Queen and Paul
McCartney). George was the lead guitarist for Big Blue Hearts
(Geffen/Interscope) and Beatnik Beatch (Atlantic) who
performed with Ringo Starr and many others. He recorded on
Chris Isaak's platinum selling Forever Blue Album and Lee Seung
Hwan's multi-million selling Korean pop smash. He has
performed with Warren Zevon and Buster Poindexter. George
was guitar instructor and mentor to Billie Joe Armstrong and
Mike Dirnt of Green Day for ten years. George has performed on
Grammy nominated releases and won a California Music Award
for Best New Major Label Artist.
