Capture Toots Thielemans

Belgian Jazz Harmonica Player, Toots Thielemans, with the honorary title of ‘baron’ and the title of ‘jazz-master,’ the highest honor that can be attributed to a jazz musician in the United States, died at the age of 94 in Brussels, his native town.

” That Mr. Thielemans played jazz on the harmonica was unusual enough. Even more unusual was how he first gained international attention by playing guitar and whistling in unison…”  

(Peter Keepnews, NY times 22 Februar 2016)

I grew up with his music.

This little article is my way to remember ‘ Baron Toots Thielemans,’ a modest and kind man and a great musician.
