I was sitting here trying to remember what made me purchase this disc when in simply dawned on me! Listening to "Chez Toots" is rather like being transported back to Paris, sitting at a sidewalk cafe and enjoying the sights, sounds and yes, even the beautiful women that the City of Lights has to offer.
I 'm not sure how but this disc has a certain intimacy to it that is hard to deny...but, than again why would you want to? The music can be terribly sentimental, maudlin and old-fashioned...and I love it! Few cd's can transport me such as this and make wish I were back in France with that old flame, a bottle of wine and so much more innocence. Songs such as " La Vie En Rose", "Sous Le Ciel De Paris" and "Moulin Rouge" literally can tug your heartstings with a certain world-weariness that comes into play on this cd. Of course having the wonderful Shirley Horn and Dianna Reeves only adds to the sheer beauty of this disc.Ooh La La....!! Toots was wise enough to understand that a disc such as this only works if you keep it honest, direct and with enough emotional integrity to make the listener aware just how much you truly love these songs. And it's terribly obvious how good of a time he is really having. And I guess that makes it so much easier for me to sit back, relax, and enjoy myself as well!
Overall, a cd that is warmly textured, comfortable like an old friend and one that simply asks of the listener to sit back and enjoy life...at least for a short while. So you may wish to pick up your own copy, buy a nice bottle of Chablis and a copy of Peter Mayle's " A Year In Provence" and settle in for the evening. Better yet...call up that old-flame! She may be thinking of you to. Bonsoir!

As a fairly serious jazz music fan who loves rich harmonies, true melodies and vocalists who transcend the everyday, I was surprised and somewhat embarrassed to discover Toots Thielemans so late!
In many other places, I'm sure, you can find descriptions of the virtuosity of this wonderful musician more lucid than I could provide. Yet, I have found myself so entranced by his music, as represented in this CD (among others), that I felt compelled to write a review here.
At least two of the pieces on this CD would have to rank in the top 100 of my all-time favorites. The music is very tastefully arranged and selected--but the guy's harmonica playing is about as close to sublime as one could possibly get with such an instrument.
I couldn't recommend this more highly to anyone with a love of France, and a love of beautiful music and superb musicianship that is never pretentious, ever fascinating.

It is always a pleasure to discover a great artist I've not heard before. Toots' playing is a revelation. I'd never imagined the harmonica as such an expressive jazz instrument. (Growing up in the 60s and 70's I'd limited it in my mind to the blues.) He combines great technique, graceful lines, and a great ear for melody and improvisation. I'm also impressed with the other artists he attracts to play with him. This album is a joy from start to finish.

"I was born in Brussels in 1922. My parents had a sidewalk café where every Sunday an accordionist came to play. I played myself at age four mostly French popular songs until...much later when I bought a harmonica, then a guitar and heard my first jazz record." ~ Toots Thielemans ~

This 1996 recording, "Chez Toots" by Toots Thielemans is one of the most magnificent works of art ever created. To my ears, he is the undisputed King of Harmonica. He is not only a masterful harmonica player, but also a guitarist, accordionist and composer. He has accompanied quite a number of great jazz singers and played alongside with some of the finest jazz musicians in the industry. I discovered his amazing artistry when I first heard Quincy Jones' album The Dude where he was featured on one of the best tracks, "Velas." And I became an instant fan. I loved everything he composed and played like the material in this pleasing album which reveals fifteen of the most romantic French melodies of all-time starting off with a perennial favorite, "Sous Le Ciel De Paris," down to the last track, a hauntingly beautiful tune "Moulin Rouge." Two of the best tunes here are the products of his creative juices, "Old Friend" and a tune he dedicated to his wife Huguette, "For My Lady."

Toots Thielemans has invited a few notable vocalists to grace this recording and they rendered their respective numbers in such elegance and style. My top favorite is a very charming rendition of "Hymne A L'Amour" by Chip.

Toots Thielemans is not only a gifted musician, he is an exceptionally lovely human being.
This CD really demonstrates both.
Joined by Belgian guitarist Philip Cathérine, French accordionist Marcel Azzola, Dutch pianist Bert van den Brink, Dutch bassist Hein Van de Geyn, Brazilian guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves, & French drummer Andre Ceccarelli - tasteful & sensitive musicians all - together they produce some very elegant ensemble work, & a surprisingly delightful & intimate ambiance.
I even liked the guest vocalists who (all but one) sounded different & more interesting than I've heard them before.
So, mes amis, if you're not familiar with Toots, you're in for a treat.
If you are familiar with Toots, you're in for a treat.
Chez Toots is utterly enchanting.
