Weekend Extra: Toots And Quincy

The You Tube heading for this video clip of Toots Thielemans at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1992 says that it has been viewed 40,422 times. Do yourself a favor and make it 40,423. Quincy Jones was the conductor of the WDR Big Band. He was enamored of Toots’s musicality, wit and warmth. Who isn’t?

Have a good weekend.

    Marvelous! Toots has such a melodic sense. I love the little “Dixie” reference at the end. I’m definitely going to do a Toots post on my blog, too.
