Tal and the Youngsters

June 22, 2008

Nicolai Foss

Here (and here for part 2) are John Abercrombie, Larry Carlton, Larry Corryell, and John Scofield, all tuxedoed, paying homage to Tal Farlow. Different styles, indeed! Tal opens with the very low key and chordal style that he developed in his later years. Corryell, well … plays like Larry Corryell. Abercrombie’s solo is characteristically thoughtful. Sco adds some great outside playing, and Carlton’s strat screams. Not exactly coherent, but fun to watch and listen to. And you gotta admire the adaptability of the drummer and the bassist!
