Tal Farlow - One of the true Greats of Jazz Guitar.

Something of a double-header tonight. In a live concert broadcast from the Composer Club on 58th Street in Manhattan on July 23, 1956, the music of Jazz Guitar legend Tal Farlow and his Trio, followed by a set by Piano great Marian McPartland her her Trio.

Two great sets which could have gone on for hours, but Network radio in the 1950's being what it was, had to make do with a half-hour's worth.

Still, top-flight performances from some of the greatest names in Jazz.
