Tal Farlow

Nearly as famous for his reluctance to play as for his outstanding abilities, guitarist Tal Farlow did not take up the instrument until he was already 21, but within a year was playing professionally and in 1948 was with Marjorie Hyams' band. While with the Red Norvo Trio (which originally included Charles Mingus) from 1949-1953, Farlow became famous in the jazz world. His huge hands and ability to play rapid yet light lines made him one of the top guitarists of the era. After six months with Artie Shaw's Gramercy Five in 1953, Farlow put together his own group, which for a time included pianist Eddie Costa. Late in 1958, Farlow settled on the East Coast, became a sign painter, and just played locally. He only made one record as a leader during 1960-1975, but emerged a bit more often during 1976-1984, recording for Concord fairly regularly before largely disappearing again. Profiled in the definitive documentary Talmage Farlow, the guitarist can be heard on his own records for Blue Note (1954), Verve, Prestige (1969), and Concord. He died of cancer July 25, 1998, at age 77.~ Scott Yanow

Loved his playing

Farlow was completely self-taught, not even a book to go by. Everything about the way he played guitar was wrong... except for the way it sounded.

Tal,s amazing composition and technique and drive. However This is called meteor, not yesterdays. You should correct.

I know and love Tal's music because of my Dad. I can see Pop sitting in the living room with Tal on the Wards console and he would tell me what a great player this guy is. He sure was. God bless my Dad for having such a great Jazz collection, and long live Tal Farlow

Tal Farlow is one of my favorite jazz guitarists. Especially funky with Red Norvo on da Bones and Charlie Mingus on Bass.
