Reply To: A little bit of Toots…


Hi Alan, Binyomin, Daren,

thanks for your comments.

I’m not entirely content with the result. It was not my plan to record this, I was just checking a mic and a few days before I had heard a recording of Toots Thielemans, and while checking the mic I discovered a certain resemblance in sound between the harp of Toots and my instrument, so I wanted this to be documented – but I should have chosen a smaller arrangement, and I should have been brave enough to exaggerate what Daren calls a “slightly drifting tuning” (because that’s what harp players do, and they have no fear to seem to be out of tune sometimes!).
