This double CD, Yesterday & Today" (March 27 release) may well contain the best Toots Thielemans you never heard before. It's a stunning collection of both rare and great music, starting with his earliest recording as a soloist and ending with a memorable duet in the new millennium.

Producer Cees Schrama, a personal friend of Toots, selected all of these treasures, looking for recordings that follow his long and impressive career and are hard or simply impossible to purchase on CD.

Some of the world's most renowned musicians have recorded with Toots Thielemans over the past 60 years. Among them, included in this package, are: Svend Asmussen, Francy Boland, Bob Brookmeyer, Ralph Burns, Ron Carter, Bruno Castellucci, Al Cohn, Louis van Dijk, Rob Franken, Urbie Green, Herbie Hancock, Shirley Horn, Dick Hyman, J.J. Johnson, Marc Johnson, Elvin Jones, Hank Jones, Quincy Jones, Niels Henning rsted Pedersen, Bucky Pizzarelli, Elis Regina, George Shearing, Zoot Sims, Ricardo SilveIra, Sivuca, Reinhold Svensson, Grady Tate, Art Taylor, Clark Terry, Cal Tjader, McCoy Tyner, Doug Watkins, Kenny Werner and others.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
