The Artistry Of Tal Farlow (Exclusive)

The Artistry Of Tal Farlow by Tal Farlow
Released: Dec 2005
Label: Verve Records
This was one of a number of LPs that the brilliant guitarist Tal Farlow cut during the 1950s before he prematurely retired from music. Farlow's quicksilver solo runs on the flag-wavers and rhythm tunes recalls bop pianists and saxophonists rather than fellow guitarists such as Charlie Christian. At the same time, the guitarist was very sensitive on ballads, and had a way of improvising with the melody (rather than away from it) that brings Lester Young to mind.
