I like probably most of you first said, "who's that great teenage bassist?" when watching the Clapton Crossroads special. I then investigated, checked out MySpace etc., and found out that she's an Aussie fusion player in her mid-twenties!
After hearing the 2 song snippets on her page, I was pretty sure I'd dig the CD and I was right. It's intricate, very composed fusion--Tal has spun a few Chick Corea records in her time on the planet, among others. Multiple different sections to each song--it keeps my ears attuned for sure.
If you like Chick Corea or The Dave Weckl Band or the 1980's John Scofield Band or Pat Metheny Group or the likes, get this CD. You won't be disappointed.
takin back.Something fresh,something that is alive not comercialized
like the rest of these "bass gods". Once I heard the U Tube "once we were
lovers" I had to get this album. Its amazing you go to her site and it almost says she has been playing bass a few short months. Now she played
with almost everybody that there is great, Corea, Clapton,Jeff Beck,
Wayne Shorter. The solo cd is delightful. Again fresh ideas. One the first tune,Tal rips "a new one" on a great bass solo. The rest of the Cd is good,but I was really waiting for more solos from the gifted,talented
bassit. My hat is off to you my dear. As they say "YOU ROCK". Its so
nice to hear moving passive bass lines,instead of this BS technical
bass playing. Her playing is very free flowing. So when you get this CD,
listening how she adds color to a fantastic tight bass lines,she is right there with the drummer.Does not miss a beat. This does remind of listen to Jaco. But of course no one can ever do what Jaco did,but he was a free
flowing bass engineer. Buy this album and wish Tal all the best for continued success and more solo albums. Thank you Tal for that much awaited breath of fresh air. Bass players heed my call to something different! Its about time!
The songwriting, musicality of the arrangements, solos by Tal and the band, and recording quality are over the top.
Truth Be Told is my favorite--so brilliantly understated and sensitive. I'm a pianist so it's hard not to notice Geoff's superb fills and solo on this track, but Tal's gorgeous solo at 2:52 just sings so damn sweetly.
I anxiously await the sophomore effort (and all of the ones after that).

She is a SMOKIN' bass player -- wow! And cute as a button!Published 9 months ago by Stephanie S. Roe
This album does not show the talent of Tal. To much loud instruments and not enough bass showing thru the mix.
Mix it again and turn up the bass fr Tal.
Amazing musicianship yet the technique doesn't overwhelm you to where you lose the melody. Hope to hear a followup album.Published 11 months ago by AL
OMG, this young woman is amazing in her own right. She and her band are so talented and professional, don't let the young look of them on the inside of the CD fool you. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Linda Cortese
