Pianist extraordinaire Kenny Werner and harmonica virtuoso Gregoire Maret pays tribute to their main inspiration, Toots Thielemans who passed away in 2016 at the age of 94. The program will include songs written by or associated with Toots, including Bluesette, Midnight Sun, Theme from Midnight Cowboy, The Dolphin, I Do It For Your Love and What a Wonderful World. Out of respect for the musician Toots Thielemans, Gregoire and Kenny will play the music of Toots Thielemans in their own style.
Kenny Werner has been a world-class pianist and composer for over forty years. His prolific output of compositions, recordings and publications continue to impact audiences around the world.
Grégoire Maret moved to New York City to study at the New School University’s Jazz Department in New York City upon graduating from the prestigious Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique de Genève. Today he is one of the most sought after harmonica players in the world: often compared to legends Toots Thielemans and Stevie Wonder, he has been asked to play with an incredible number of famous musicians including Youssn’Dour, Me’ Shell Ndegeocello, Pete Seeger, Cassandra Wilson, to name a few.
This event has passed.
