R.I.P. Mr. Jean-Baptiste Frédéric Isidor, Baron Thielemans (29 April 1922 – 22 August 2016)

Although he plays guitar exclusively on two of the eight selections included on this CD reissue, it is Toots Thielemans' harmonica playing that is most unique. He holds his own on a hard bop blowing date with baritonist Pepper Adams, pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Wilbur Ware and drummer Art Taylor, jamming on such songs as "East of the Sun," "Struttin' with Some Barbeque" and "Isn't It Romantic." Even four decades later, no jazz harmonica player has dethroned the great Toots.

Pediatrician by day, and musician by night, Paul Rossy recently sought out the expertise of singer-songwriter Ian Kelly to help him create an original album. Last April, Dr. Rossy found a way to combine his two greatest passions by launching his very first album of original songs at a concert benefiting the Montreal Children’s Hospital, where he practises medicine. The event was held April 29th, in a packed Corona Theatre, and allowed the singer-songwriter to raise funds thanks to all those present, and to the kind generosity of the Alan & Roula Rossy Family Foundation. On the album, recorded at the Pierre Marchand Studio, you can hear: Joel Kerr on upright bass, Mark Nelson on drums, Jonathan Cayer on piano/keyboard, François Jalbert on guitar, Annie Dominique on saxophone, Alexis French on trumpet and flugelhorn, Jean-Nicolas Trottier on trombone, and Lévy Bourbonnais on harmonica.

The Real… Toots Thielmans features 60 of the jazz musicians finest songs across 3CDs.
Toots Thielemans virtually introduced the chromatic harmonica as a jazz instrument. In fact, beginning in the mid-'50s, he never had a close competitor. Thielemans simply played the harmonica with the dexterity of a saxophonist and even successfully traded off with the likes of Oscar Peterson.

Jazz harmonica legend Toots Thielemans called his friend harmonicist/composer Maurício Einhorn "a vital force in Brazilian music both as a player and a composer". Einhorn’s influence flows over into jazz. He has worked with such major figures as Jim Hall, David Sanborn, Paquito D’Rivera, Baden Powell, as well as singers Bobby McFerrin, and Sarah Vaughan; the likes of Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Mann and Bossa Nova legend Jobim have recorded his compositions.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. This is the music that will be playing when you die and go to heaven. Excellent original style Dixieland, George's clarinet is heaven! I don't know if any record can do justice to the live experience of the original giants of jazz creating this stuff. But the George Lewis tracks on this record come pretty close! For this alone this CD is well worth buying.

We have decided to choose PARIS, glorious & mysterious, as a starting point of our compositions. The omnipresence of rhythm in the sounds of the city made us want to base this record on original grooves of drums & percussions, and then to give free rein to our impressions and images of PARIS. We have thus rendered 24 hours of the life of an imaginary observer in PARIS into music.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Jazz sessions with Toots Thielemans are always a treat, and this album's no exception – one that features Toots' guitar and harmonica in the company of some great younger players from the 70s European scene! The set was produced by Chris Hinze, who also plays flute on the record – and other group members include Philip Catherine on guitar, Joachim Kuhn on keyboards, and the mighty rhythm team of John Lee on bass and Gerry Brown on drums – all musicians who lay back beautifully here, and really stick to the spacier side of their talents! Given that Toots is on harmonica on most numbers, the sound is wonderfully gentle – hardly the heavy fusion workout you might expect from the lineup, although there's a few subtle doses of funk that are much appreciated.
