Re: [Harp-L] Toots

Hi Aongus -

Toots has covered a lot of ground over the years and I would argue that there's no single 'definitive' CD of his work. And since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, perhaps you could mention some jazz artists or even a particular style of jazz that you do like, and that might lead to some specific suggestions from the Toots catalog. If nothing else, tell us which CD you got that was such a disappointment. Some of us have never heard a Toots CD that we didn't like ;-).

- Slim.
