Re: [Harp-L] Toots


Might I suggest 4 works that would cover varied some ground and all are Stellar works and DEFINITIVE TOOTS IMHO:
I'd even go as far as saying required Listening,-) enjoy.....

For the NON Straight ahead Jazzer, but still wants to hear his Genius with some Lush arrangements
also was released in Europe in the Late 70's as SLOW MOTION

For a Jazz fan:

Brasilian Jazz fans....Toots Killer Recordings BOTH Vol i or !!

Straight ahead BEBOP FANS

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 ;-).

On a business trip to Germany about twenty years ago I came across a bunch
of German medics who were serious Jazz enthusiasts and fans of Toots. I was
amazed to discover they had never heard of Larry Adler.

On my return to Ireland I made it my business to get a CD of Toots to see
what all the talk was about. It was a heck of a disappointment. It did
nothing for me.

However in view of the fact that I was not wildly enthusiastic about Howard
Levy either the first time I heard him I think I may have just bought a
'bum' recording.

Anyone care to recommend the "must have - definitive" CD of this Jazz icon?
