Toots Thielemans passed at age of 94 today.  He was a giant in the jazz world. This Belgian-American played with the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman.

I want to share four joyous minutes of Toot’s¬†performance of Bluesette with you. You may not recognize the name, but I’m sure you’ll recognize the tune.

If you’ve got them, put on your headphones and crank up the sound–that’s what I did. What a sweet sound.

R.I.P. Toots!
