This is the first illustrated biography of the great jazz guitar player Tal Farlow, who died in 1998, written by Jean-Luc Katchoura with Michele Farlow, Tal's widow. It includes many never published photos from the guitarist's private collection. More than 400 illustrations including 150 photos never published. Though a self-taught guitarist, he was nonetheless an exceptional virtuoso, endowed with a great sense of harmony and an unlimited melodic imagination. These talents secured his place as one of the seminal guitarists of the 20th century. This biography also includes a CD of recorded interviews by the artist, as well as tracks with him playing at home with fellow guitarist and close friend, Jimmy Raney and bassist, Red Mitchell. On other tracks, Tal plays with friends Gene Bertoncini and Jack Wilkins. The book is bilingual in English and French.
