Guitar Great
Philip Gardner | Melbourne, Australia | 11/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tal Farlow is the enigmatic genius of jazz guitar. His large hands and untutored approach mean he does things few others can do. This collection is a wonderful example of his playing, and is a clear, modern sounding recording. Listen to his use of harmonics on "I hear a rhapsody", the beautifully loose yet melodic treatment of Django Reinhardt's "Nuages", or the gentle "One for my baby". These alone are worth the price of the CD. Highly recommended."
The Late, GREAT Tal Farlow!

"Tal Farlow's "Chromatic Palette" was recorded in 1981, a good 30 years after his groundbreaking work with the Red Norvo Trio and his early solo albums. Tal's early recordings "Tal Farlow Quartet" which is hard to find, "The Tal Farlow Album" and "The Artistry of Tal Farlow" as well as the Red Norvo sessions are Tal in his prime. These albums stand out as his very best playing. However, this album is sufficient proof that even though leaving New York and the spotlight for decades Tal never left his instrument or lost his love for harmony. The songs here are not only great tunes but are full of lush chords and beautiful playing by all 3 musicians. This is overall a very relaxed cd especially compared to alot of Tal's other records. Tommy Flanagan shines as well. I can't pick any highlights, they are all great to me. If you love great music, buy this."
