Robin Nolan is one of the world’s best known and most admired gypsy jazz guitarists and has been praised for his musical genius and creativity by Willie Nelson, Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, and the late George Harrison. Robin became one of George Harrison’s favorite guitarists and was his ‘secret weapon’ at many a party thrown at his English country estate Friar Park. Legendary in the Django Reinhardt world, Robin has headlined every major gypsy jazz festival across the globe and Nolan’s music is taking gypsy jazz into the 21st Century beyond Django Reinhardt and incorporating influences of The Beatles, Ravi Shankar and AC/DC.

Howard, a native of Long Beach, California, began playing guitar at the age of ten with many influences including the infamous Django Reinhardt. In 1977–78 he studied jazz guitar at the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) in Hollywood with Herb Ellis, Joe Pass, and Howard Roberts. He signed with Concord Jazz in 1980 and his association with the master of the seven-string guitar, George Van Eps, allowed Alden to become a master himself. Alden has recorded with many jazz greats including Jimmy Bruno, Herb Ellis, Frank Vignola, Michael Moore, Bill Goodwin, Lew Tabackin, and Renee Rosnes. Steve Miller has featured Alden on recording projects, and Howard has joined him for live appearances. Guitar virtuoso Leo Kottke said of Howard’s recent solo recording on K2B2 records; “It's the best recording of the seven-string guitar I've ever heard!”.
