Any Tal enthusiast should have this video recorded live in 1988 at Bowling Green State University. Songs include Misty, Satin Doll, Billie's Bounce, Just Friends and Autumn Leaves. Tal Farlow is backed up by Chris Buzzelli, Jeff Halsey, and Jerry McKenzie.
 
"It was both a pleasure and an honor to have to opportunity to play this concert with Tal in 1988. It was originally recorded by our local PBS station (great 3 camera video!!) for local broadcast, and released on DVD by Mel Bay Publications in 2003. 85 minutes of Tal’s great playing including some of his great chord work and his trademark artificial harmonics."
