Tal Farlow – The Tal Farlow Album

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars and stated ” Farlow is heard in his early prime. Thirty-two at the time, he was a brilliant technician who could play extremely fast, yet clean and with a light touch. His solos on the 11 standards are hard-swinging and creative, yet thoughtful.”
