Tal Farlow - Fuerst Set

The "Fuerst" in the title refers to Ed Fuerst, who had frequent jazz parties in his apartment and recorded this set and its follow-up. Featured is one of guitarist Tal Farlow's finest groups, a trio with pianist Eddie Costa (whose lower-register solos were distinctive) and bassist Vinnie Burke. The group stretches out on four lengthy numbers : "Jordu," "Have You Met Miss Jones," a nearly 15-and-a-half-minute rendition of "Out of Nowhere" (which has a vocal by Gene Williams) and "Opus De Funk." There are many hot sections on the album, and the recording quality is quite listenable.

Yes! I always regretted in later years not picking up Farlow's Xanadu recordings, but I wasn't really into guitar jazz back then. He's become my favorite jazz guitarist in recent times, and this really is great to have. Thanks.
