Tal Wilkenfeld

She has to be one of the most extraordinary, vibrant young bass players I have seen/heard since Stanley Clarke. She a true craftsperson of the bass.


    I just saw her last night on the Clapton special on PBS. She was backing Jeff Beck during what I thought was the performance of the night. I also liked Steve Winwood doing "Dear Mr. Fantasy" but Beck just shredded and Ms. Wilkenfeld added the perfect counterpoint to the type of avant-gard style of the set.
