Universally acknowledged as the supreme virtuoso of jazz harmonica, Toots Thielemans is a wonderfully creative and imaginative musician ? and this is vividly in evidence on this album, a compilation of nine superb tracks recorded in various locations between March 1994 and December 1998. The compositions featured have been carefully selected for their melodic and harmonic sophistication and Thielemans, as ever, demonstrates his well-known ability to bring out the full beauty of a well-crafted romantic ballad.
This is Toots in characteristically inspired form. Unquestionably a must for Thielemans fans.
