In 2008, Wilkenfeld was voted "The Year's Most Exciting New Player" in a Bass Player magazine readers' choice poll.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 will pick up mistakes that we, even Vinnie and I, miss.
But I didn't think it would be right for him to be playing rhythm guitar all the way through that one number.At the conclusion of the tour, Krantz and Carlock, along with John Beasley backed Wilkenfeld during her headlining set for Bass Player LIVE! In July she accompanied Jeff Beck in a tribute to George Martin concert in Los Angeles.She appeared at Warren Haynes's 20th Annual Christmas Jam, reuniting with The Allman Brothers Band and guesting with Gov't Mule, Ivan Neville and Robben Ford.I just grabbed the microphone and shouted, 'Jimmy Paaaage' and went straight into the song. That's what you call dangerous, that's living on your reflexes." The DVD including this performance, Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame: Legends was released in 2010.In the few weeks' break between touring Japan and America, Wilkenfeld performed with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as their first musical guest.
