Event Summary

“A journey through the music of the jazz harmonica pioneer with Phil Hopkins and classy band.” Guardian Jazz: Pick of the Week
In a concert programme endorsed by Toots Thielemans himself shortly before his death in 2016, harmonica maestro Phil Hopkins joins some of the UK’s most inventive jazz musicians to explore the eclectic repertoire of Toots. Taking the audience on what amounts to a journey through popular music of the last 50 years, the setlist ranges from well-known themes to Sesame Street and Midnight Cowboy, Thielemans’ own composition Bluesette (which quickly became a jazz standard), and the results of famous collaborations with Benny Goodman, Paul Simon, Bill Evans and many others.
Featuring Phil Hopkins: chromatic harmonica • Jonathan Gee: piano • Jeremy Shoham: sax • Yaron Stavi: bass • Rick Finlay: drums

Price: £10 / £9 / £5
