The Last Recording Session at Nola Studios

The Last Recording Session at Nola Studios

Last Session at Nola Studios

Nola was a legendary studio on W. 57th Street in Manhattan between 6th and 7th avenues. The first 40 years of the music for Sesame Street was recorded there as well as thousands of albums by artists from all sectors of the music industry. The chief engineer was my late friend, Jim Czak. The grand piano that was used in the studio during the last 30+ years of its existence had belonged to jazz great, Errol Garner. A tragedy that studios like Nola are no longer around, often replaced by high price condo buildings. Here I am with Mark Thrasher (L) and Tom Murray (C).
