How about a little more Tal Wilkenfeld?







"I was actually walking around to like several clubs every night till the sun came up, sitting in at jazz clubs just learning. I was really the only one that would go into these clubs with an electric bass, because these were like, you know, places that played exclusively bebop. So I got some funny looks for quite some time. But it was a priceless education."[5]
At the start of 2009, Wilkenfeld toured Australia and Japan with Beck, who commented in an interview; "It's interesting to have some amazing players in my band like Tal, who is about, you know half, a quarter of the age of either Vinnie or me. She's a genius. She will pick up mistakes that we, even Vinnie and I, miss. So she's a great anchor as well."[8]
In Sting's 2017 interview with Bass Player he recalled: "With Tal it was very funny; we were doing an event in Las Vegas, and we were playing an Aerosmith song—I forget the song—and it was kind of a complicated bass line. And Tal came over and said, 'Sting, it’s not quite the way you’re playing it' [laughs]. I really respected her courage to come up to me and teach me the right way to play the part, and I was very grateful. She’s an amazing bassist with great ears." [12]

Tal appears with Jeff Beck and Lizzie Ball on Clapton's Crossroads 2013. She doesn't solo but the band is great.
I remember when some Aussies came to the US and kicked ass on rock. Tal has done the same with the bass.

Check her out with Jeff Beck Live at Ronnie Scott's.
Yes, Tony Allen throwing down the Afrobeat twist on Moanin' is feeling pretty good!
