Two legends in the world of Jazz; “Toots Thielemans & Kenny Werner” will be coming to the Dakota Jazz club & Restaurant this coming March. To give a little description of the two musicians Jean-Baptiste Frédéric Isidor, Baron Thielemans or as he is known in the music businessToots Thielemans is a Belgian jazz musician well known for his guitar and harmonica playing in addition whistling. While Kenny Werner, is a world class pianist and composer. Also, they have worked with the likes of; Tom Rainey, Ratzo Harris, Mel Lewis Orchestra, Sidney Bechet, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Max Roach, etc. just to name a few. Combined they are sure to entice any person that is into jazz music. While I have not heard much of their music, one tune I am in most favor of is “smile” very mellow, allowing both musicians the chance to be heard and analyzed to display their talents. This is a pact you won’t want to miss.
