I have a compilation cd which is
pretty good. I keep meaning to
explore more of his
music/playing. He played a lot
with guitar great Lenny Breau.
There may still be clips up on
youtube of them. A friend has a
much larger collection.

Amazing guitar player. He’s just about the core of jazz guitar playing, together with Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass and -yes- Pat. If you haven’t heard Tal, you haven’t heard jazz guitar to the full.

I would imagine many of the AG folks are familiar with Tal. The "Octopus" is one of the American Jazz Guitar legends. Check out the Red Norvo Trio!

Tal Farlow is considered one of the all-time great Jazz guitarists. He is a Master. His nickname was Octopus because he had huge hands that just spread over the fretboard.
