Tal Wilkenfeld

Born:

Tal Wilkenfeld is a musical marvel; the kind of dynamic young talent whose fresh vision and uncanny intuition puts a whole new perspective on an age-old art form. Like a muse-lit meteor, Tal blazed onto the music scene as a teen, sitting in with the Allman Brothers within months of her 2006 arrival in New York City. By the end of 2007, she had released her acclaimed, instrumental debut, Transformation, and hit the road with Chick Corea. Tal went on to appear on A&E with Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, then joined Jeff Beck’s world tour for what culminated in her global breakout moment

Tal Wilkenfeld: Love Remains

Read "Love Remains" reviewed by Doug Collette


Prior to the release of Love Remains, Australian-born Tal Wilkenfeld may have been best known for her talent on the bass in the company of Jeff Beck circa Live at Ronnie Scott's (Eagle Video, 2008). In the interim, however, she has been busy with stints playing for a disparate range of artists including Jackson Browne and ...

Top Ten Jazz Tracks for Surf Music

Read "Top Ten Jazz Tracks for Surf Music" reviewed by Alan Bryson


The notion of jazz as surf music seems absurd at first blush, but it can work surprisingly well. Some time ago I learned this by happenstance while listening to an album by fusion guitarist Alex Machacek as I watched surf videos on YouTube. It was a true “ah ha" moment. Compared to the original soundtrack, Alex's ...

Top Ten Musicians Who Embody Cool

Read "Top Ten Musicians Who Embody Cool" reviewed by Alan Bryson


America has produced some very cool things: jazz, rock, blues, country, hot rods, Hammond organs, and electric guitars. Another one of the coolest things is the language itself, brewed in the melting pot that is America. Like jazz, blues, and rock, American English itself can't be imagined without the influence of African Americans. “Hep," “hip," “funky," ...

Trevor Rabin: All Colors Considered

Read "Trevor Rabin: All Colors Considered" reviewed by Ian Patterson


It wouldn't be the norm, that's for sure, but 23 years between solo albums is just one unusual facet of guitarist/composer Trevor Rabin's career to date. Whether taking a stance against apartheid in the early '70s in his native South Africa or turning down the opportunity to play in super group Asia for artistic reasons, Rabin ...

Trevor Rabin: Jacaranda

Read "Jacaranda" reviewed by Ian Patterson


It's been 23 years since Can't Look Away (Elektra Records, 1989), guitarist Trevor Rabin's previous solo album of original material, and 18 years since his departure from Yes. Rabin's relatively low profile since reflects his immersion in composing almost 40 film soundtracks. Jacaranda is a dazzling offering that showcases Rabin's virtuosity in numerous styles, drawing from ...
