of course toots is God, i can't argue that, but.........
song just popped up on the iPod connected to the boston acoustic tower
speakers....i can hear it from the sun-drenched patio at the cocktail
hour...says to myself, "self, the tone , phrasing, pureness of tone,
sureness of tone, strength of tone, minute masterful artistic inflections,
technical mastery of the chromatic harmonica as a dominating jazz
instrument, although i am not sure the name of that song, it has got to be
toots thielmans (or some other chrom-dude, i have 18,000 songs on my iTunes)
...get up, go inside, look at iPod.....Mike Turk, 'how long has this been
going on", from turks works cd,.....i still say mike turk is a better jazz
player than toots for my dollar, at least as far as that recording goes.
one sweet cut. anybody have a video of the show at chris michalek's
harmonica summit in minneapolis where toots and howard levy have a cutting
contest diatonic vs. chromatic??? i would very very much like to purchase a
dvd copy....please r.s.v.p. on or offlist.
have a great summery weekend y'all,
