here’s toots thielemans’ european quartet live in oosterhout.  this was actually just posted on dime by “dutch_master” earlier this year (and it’s only 14 jan), but after a couple of listens i thought it should be one of few shows that get up here almost immediately.  a great recording by the late “old dutch master”!

the cover uses screenshots from youtube, and is a riff on the cover of the european quartet live cd (which has material from concerts in 2006, ’07 and ’08).

old dutch masters archives series:
the odm-archives series consists of recordings the odm made over the years.
he sadly passed awy on 17 april 2016. many of these recordings were just waiting
on a harddisk as he was depending on friends to prepare these for upload.
the man was just too busy working and visiting concerts.
