This thread is fast becoming a sexist rant and the reason why some bass players are over-rated! There is novelty and promotional value, for putting those two young girls with Jeff Beck n Jamiroquai! Just look at how much you're all talking about it. I'm sure there are far better players than Tal who could have cut it with Beck! I'd much rather listen to a fat genius than get my rocks off on some young girl half my age. The comments i've read about Tal's appearance in the past have sometimes been disturbing! For the record, i find Tal's style and repertoire boring, and it isn't really my thing. Of course she's a good player, just not as good as some other lessor known females (will post links later) in my humble opinion. On the other hand, i think Marta has the goods, and i personally love her choice of repetoire and style.
