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.

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.
