Today's cd/One More For The Road
Toots Thielemans/One More For The Road/2006
Recently I heard a song on a late night jazz show, a rendition of One For My Baby, and I thought, wait a minute that's Jamie Cullum, but who is playing the harmonica? When the dj announced it was Toots Thielemans, I realized how much I still have to learn about jazz. I've done some reading since, and of course I bought the cd, and have done a lot of listening. He is utterly fantastic. And this cd is perfect. You may get a taste of it here.
I'll be buying a lot more of Toots Thielemans.
