Tal Wilkenfeld on Bass

Great young musician – Tal Wilkenfeld {Serendipity}

I’ve seen a lot of musicians get “touted” as the next best this or that. And I’ve certainly had the displeasure of hearing some crappy music come out (like that horrific over-produced, over-rated Lindsey Stirling dubstep noise that millions are in love with now – and will not even remember 4 years from now).

But I wanted to share a glimpse of talent I stumbled upon the other day – it’s this bassist Tal Wilkenfeld (from Australia). She’s already gotten some top-billing since coming to the states a decade ago, touring with respected musicians like Jeff Beck, The Allman Brothers and Eric Clapton. (This artist is nothing “new,” but rather new to my purview).

Now, I stopped liking “Jazz” back in the 80’s – but “Serendipity” is a really well done (and original) song without special effects or mind-melding noise. Excellent! (Song starts at 1:30). Enjoy.

She is quite good. She did some work with jazz & fusion legend Herbie Hancock a few years ago. She also recently played bass on Ryan Adams’ most album.

I don’t think the bit about touring with the Allman’s is correct, as they have only had two bass players since reforming in 1989. I suspect they may have both appeared on the bill of Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival at some point.

She’s really good, got that 70’s fusion vibe. I think that’s also the drummer who toured with her and Jeff Beck.
