Tal Farlow – This Is Cutting Edge Bebop

Tal Farlow was one of the pioneers to further develop Bebop Jazz Guitar after Charlie Christian. He really has his own style and own melodic language which I demonstrate in this video with an analysis of the solo on Gone With The Wind.

This Tal Farlow solo really highlights how he plays across the bar line and has a very advanced use of chromaticism in his playing. In many ways his concept and his solo lines where ahead of his time and he was truly a bebop innovator with a clear own voice.

At the end of the video I also talk a little bit about how his playing likely has influenced Kurt Rosenwinkel.
