Jazz in Brussels - Toots Thielemans

the musician : Toots Thielemans
the tune : Sophisticated Lady
the artist : Philippe Debongnie

I did this drawing for the "they draw & travel" blog where you can find maps and cityscapes drawn by artists from all over the world. It really is a nice place to spend some time. My illo shows the four best jazz clubs in Brussels. And to go with that, I chose the music of our most famous jazz musician: Toots Thielemans. He is an amazing musician, incredible what he can do with an harmonica, and he also played with all the great ones. If you have some time, browse on the youtube selection of his music, you'll be blown by his music.
