With contributions from Lenny Breau and George Benson, this DVD is a rare treat not only for long-time fans of the late, great Talmage Holt Farlow, but for anyone interested in the history of jazz guitar styles The Legendary Guitar Of Tal Farlow features a new introduction by Woody Mann.
Tal Farlow is nearly as famous for his reluctance to play as for his fast, bebop influenced work and the occasional use of percussive finger tapping. When he was younger, he played a mandolin tuned to that of a ukulele because his hands weren’t big enough to play on his father’s guitar. When his hands were big enough, he noticed that he had two extra strings to play, so he used his thumb on the 5th and 6th strings. By age 22, he was playing professionally, and in 1948 he 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.
Jazz and blues guitarist Woody Mann learned from legendary Rev. Gary Davis and then played and recorded with Son House, Bukka White and John Fahey. He has performed throughout the world, recorded over a dozen CDs, and is an internationally renowned guitar teacher.
