Toots Thielemans died age 94.



He was a really gifted musician, and a charming performer.

I saw him perform live once, in a quartet together with Philip Catherine and Stephane Grappelli. The concert had been poorly announced, and there were only a few dozen people in the audience. They played great, with commitment and grace, just as if the place would be full.

May he rest in peace.

Just watched Manon Des Sources which memorably features his playing (also known as the 'sad Stella Artois music'). A great artist, really brought life out of his playing.
