Trident Studios, St Anne’s Court, London
Producer: George Martin
Engineer: Barry Sheffield
John played a brilliant solo on Honey Pie – sounded like Django Reinhardt or something. It was one of them where you just close your eyes and happen to hit all the right notes… sounded like a little jazz solo.
The session took place at Trident Studios in London’s Soho, from 4pm-3.30am. Honey Pie was completed on 4 October 1968 with the addition of saxophone and clarinet.
