Rick Finlay drums
Phil Scragg bass

In a concert programme endorsed by Thielemans himself shortly before his death in 2016, harmonica maestro Phil Hopkins joins some of the UK’s most inventive jazz musicians to explore the eclectic repertoire of Toots.

Taking the audience on what amounts to a journey through popular music of the last 50 years, the setlist ranges from well-known themes to Sesame Street and Midnight Cowboy, Thielemans’ own composition Bluesette (which quickly became a jazz standard), and the results of famous collaborations with Benny Goodman, Paul Simon, Bill Evans and many others.

The band features Liam Dunachie: piano, Jeremy Shoham: sax, Phil Scragg: bass, Rick Finlay: drums, who between them have worked with everyone from Guy Barker and Julian Joseph to Dudu Pukwana and Robert Plant.

Duration: 2 hours (including 30 minute interval)
