A great Toots Retrospective!!!!

"Toots Thielemans has for over 50 years been redifining the way the world sees the harmonica. From his beginnings working with Benny Goodman, through his work with George Shearing, Quincy Jones, on soundtracks and his own recordings and recordings with other Jazz greats, Toots has shown the world that the harmonica isn't simply the humble musical instrument used by hobos and shoeshine boys.This collection gives an excellent overview of Toots' amazing career. The earliest recording, from 1953, features Toots with George Shearing and from there it takes us through his many musical faces, from his many recordings with Quincy Jones, through various small groups and orchestras that he has recorded with included his many forays into Latin American Jazz.the overal result is a complex, yet satisfying collection that will surely delight any Toots Thielemans fan as well as give a wonderful introduction to the uninitiated. If you thought that the harmonica was simply a novelty in the world of Jazz, then this album will certainly give you a great taste of what the harmonica is capable of.I definitely recommend that you add this masterpiece to your collection."

"If you like music, you will love this compilation of classics from this Belgian genius. Toots simply oozes class in this compendium - even if you don't like jazz, you will be converted after listening to such tunes as Flirt and the fantastic Hummin'"
