Toots Thielemans: Chez Toots



If ever an instrumentalist stood alone as champion of his instrument in his given field, then Toots Thielemans is that person. With nary a jazz competitor in sight, Toots took his harmonica to new heights of virtuosity and fields of endeavor, crafting a sound and style all his own. The album’s 16 tracks find Toots in the partial company of several singers, including Diana Krall (“La Vie en Rose”) and Johnny Mathis (“Les Moulins de Mon Couer”), in addition to its purely instrumental numbers. The music is refined and well-crafted, with no loss of swing. Total Time: 51 minutes
