A guitarist’s guitarist, Tal Farlow influenced a whole generation of younger players with his sublime combination of virtuosic bebop lines and swing. Despite Farlow’s reluctance to be in the spotlight (in the late ‘50s he had settled on the East Coast to enjoy a quieter life, working as a sign painter), Concord Jazz founder and producer Carl Jefferson somehow managed to lure the guitar wizard into the recording studio in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, documenting several now-classic Farlow sessions. Two of those sessions are presented in this 2-CD set: Tal Farlow ’78 and The Legendary Tal Farlow. Amongst the last of his recorded output, these two intimate sessions put the spotlight right back where it belongs—on the unassuming Tal Farlow and his unparalleled guitar artistry.
