Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This video profiles jazz guitarist Tal Farlow. Farlow is a lion in the world of jazz guitar and his works have been studied by guitarists for many years. However, he is almost unknown outside the circle of jazz guitarists because of his retirement from the music scene in the late '50s. In search of a steadier, quiet life, Farlow returned to his work as a sign painter. However, Farlow has begun to tour again, particularly in the United Kingdom. The film presents a rare look at the life, work, and performances of this jazz guitar genius.
