About the album
One of the world's famous jazz icons turns 90 years old this spring, in April! His anniversary will be celebrated in a grand manner: with a special 90yrs CD and a special bonus DVD with unique material! The only thing that Toots wants in his life, reaching this age, is to play! To him it is like breathing. "Pianist Karel Boehlee, drummer Hans van Oosterhout and double-bass player Hein Van de Geyn carress the pearls that they perform lovingly and full of passion, directed by Toots", this is what Erno Elsinga wrote on the website Jazzenzo about the former live-cd of this firm quartet. In every venue the quartet plays, they are welcomed by the audience "as if they are greeting old friends", Allaboutjazz.com wrote strikingly. And that is exactly what Toots and his Dutch colleagues do on this Anniversary release: making music for their public!
