Tal Wilkenfeld (born in Sydney, Australia ca.1986) is an Australian bassist who has gained worldwide attention performing alongside some of rock and jazz music's most notable artists. In 2008, Wilkenfeld was voted "The Year's Most Exciting New Player" for the year in a Bass Player Magazine reader's choice poll. She has impressed critics and fans alike with musical achievements usually reserved for players with relatively long established careers. Wilkenfeld became a professional bassist after only three years on the instrument. In addition to her work as a sideman for many of music's legendary musicians, she has assumed the role of bandleader to her own eponymous trios, whose musicians have included Wayne Krantz, Keith Carlock, and Jeff "Tain" Watts.
