‘Old Friend’ by Toots Thielemans, arr. Hein Zegers

Toots Thielemans, ‘Old Friend’, played by Hein Zegers on chromatic rack-harmonica and piano.

Each time Toots Thielemans came to perform in Brussels, Hein Zegers, as a little kid and as a ‘ket’ from Brussels himself, took the tramway trying to go and listen to him, mouth wide open. Toots, his big role model, as a musician and as a human being.

Later, Hein lived and travelled in more than 100 countries all over the world. His trusty compact harmonica in his pocket. Like a friend that’s always there when you need him.

Now Hein is fully back in Belgium. Back to the beautiful music of Toots Thielemans. Toots, like an old friend, who’s always there in moments you need him.
