Tal is fabulous. I have to admit I've only ever seen her perform with Jeff Beck. What a talent she is on bass guitar. Enjoy the gig! smiley

Will give a report. She is also opening for The Who in March, but my rescheduled Toronto show is in April, so I will miss her for that.

Saw Tal Wilkenfeld in a small club in Toronto. It was a sold out gig, with about 200 people. She was backed up by an excellent drummer, a good guitarist, and a decent keyboardist/guitarist. She primarily played bass (usually switching basses every song), although there were a few songs in which she played guitar (either tuned to a open D or in standard tuning dropped down to C).

The sound was not great. Her vocals were clear, but the bass was quite muddy. The only time you could really hear the bass well was when she played a song solo on bass with minimal other accompaniment. So unfortunately, it was sometimes hard to appreciate her playing. It often looked like it was really interesting - lots of chording, complicated runs - but it was hard to hear how it fit into the music a fair bit of the time. What I could hear was just as impressive as the stuff you can find on YouTube.

Her singing was very impressive. She has a nice warm alto, was on pitch, and was very emotionally expressive. She particularly shone on the quieter numbers, where her subtle shifts of emotions were most evident.

She primarily played her own original material, none of which is available yet so I couldn't get familiar beforehand. Most of it was musically and chordally complex, with clear jazz influences although it didn't sound like jazz per se. Because of the complexity, only some of the songs were easily accessible right off the bat. I would probably need to listen to her material repeatedly to get a better sense of if I would really like it more thoroughly. That said, I liked a number of the songs on first listen.

She also did a few covers. Jeff Buckley's Last Goodbye was a fairly straight version. More interesting was the bluesy reinvention of How Soon Is Now.

She is also quite riveting as a performer, both when singing and when playing. She was also confident, casual, and disarmingly sweet in her interactions with the crowd. No great stories though (she must have some, given whom she has played with). She is also tiny; they should put her on her own riser.

Nice review! Thanks for that!

What a shame the sound wasn't up to par, considering the level of talent she's associated with; ie, Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Jackson Browne, Steve Lukather, Vinnie Colaiuta, Lee Ritenour, Wayne Krantz, Ryan Adams. She's all of 29 years old now. Very impressive for a child of the 90s.
