Sitting here half watching the Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival on PBS Great Performances and suddenly – wow… Okay Jeff Beck (one of my personal favorites from way back) is jamming… But, who is this kid he’s got up on stage on bass? Man, it’s amazing to see so much tallent stuffed into someone so young… Absent credits for Beck’s band, a little digging on the web revels that a young woman named Tal Wilkenfeld appeared with Beck for the Chicago 2007 Guitar Festival. I’m definitely going to buy her debut CD and dig through my jazz CD’s (because I haven’t listened to any of them for what seems like years).
Here are some links:
