Art in the Afternoon: Tal Burdine
Talmage Burdine (Tal) has been playing piano most of his life. He is a natural talent with no formal music background to speak of. His music is mostly made up of standards, ranging from American folk songs, to the age of the crooners, to early jazz pieces, and film and stage titles. The music spans a wide variety of genres and audiences, always finding something they recognize and can relate to. Tal also makes all the pieces he plays his own; putting his own signature style and vibe to each rendition of standards, and offers classic notes with a contemporary feel.
