Great CD from popular New York-based player

Powerful playing with a varied selection, culminating in the final track of 11 popular reels!

this album is a tour de force in the highly ornamented joe burke style of b/c box playing……mr. nolan is scary-good at it. and he is a gent to boot.

john’s my teacher and i can say he’s one hell of a nice guy and an extremely talented box player. Ive yet to hear a better box player

Re: A Rake Of Reels

John plays an old grey Paolo C#/D on this, actually. He’s the only box player I’ve heard do that super-punchy type of playing on a press and draw accordion, I love it.
