This film showcases the music of Talmage Farlow and offers a charming and engaging look into his life. After its original release in 1981, Tal discovered that he was in demand again, venturing far from Sea Bright on international tours and in appearances throughout the States. Since his death on July 25, 1998, his place among the great innovators of modern jazz seems well assured. Constantly searching, refining, and experimenting, Tal Farlow was more than just a great musician. His patient struggle to find a balance between artistic excellence and peace of mind is the real story. This film is a sensitive and fitting tribute to the giant of a man that was Tal. Songs performed on the DVD include: Autumn in New York • Fascinating Rhythm • I Love You • Flamingo • Jordu • I Hear a Rhapsody. Includes over one hour of bonus materials, including the “Penthouse Sessions” by the Tal Farlow Trio, outtakes from Tal Farlow and Lenny Breau, and a photo gallery. 59 minutes.
“A revealing glimpse of Mr. Farlow both as a person and a musician ... As much concerned with a philosophy of life as it is with music.”
– New York Times
