The Interpretations of Tal Farlow

One of the rarest albums by the guitar jazz great Tal Farlow ! The set's one of Tal's best for Verve (although they're all pretty darn good), and it features his edgey guitar in a west coast rhythm trio with Claude Williamson on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. The titles are mostly standards, but they're played with a nice moody groove that opens them up nicely, despite the short takes on the tracks – that great sense of economy that always makes Farlow work from this period so great. Titles include "Manhattan", "I Remember You", "There Will Never Be Another You", and a solo version of "Autumn Leaves". Packaged in a nifty little cover, with the original David Stone Martin design !

Ooops! my bad; looks like I did grab this in 2010 - but it must have been lost in a computer crash. So again, many thanks for the re-up, mel...
