Guitar Genius: The LA Sessions - Tal Farlow

Guitar Genius: The LA Sessions
Throughout the 1950s, Tal Farlow dominated modern jazz guitar. Self-taught, Farlow quickly became revered for his adventurous sense of harmony and a breathtaking virtuosic technique which earned him the nickname ‘The Octopus' due to his large hands and long fingers.

Something of a jazz poster boy, Tal Farlow first captured the public's attention as one-third of vibraphonist Red Norvo's Trio (the other member was Charles Mingus). In 1953, Farlow went solo producing recordings of outstanding quality.

Just ten years after first astounding the jazz world, Tal Farlow disappeared from sight for the next 15-years. It wasn't as a result of a lifestyle of over-indulgences. Quite the reverse, having married, Farlow had become disenchanted with constant touring and returned to his original profession as a sign painter! When in 1968 and again in 1976, Farlow put down his brushes and returned to music full time, he had lost none of his prowess and proceeded to impress listeners (and fellow musicians) as before.

This two-CD set comprises Farlow in Los Angeles fronting some of that city's finest. By way of a bonus, we've included six wondrous tracks featuring the Red Norvo Trio at its creative peak.
