Today, Belgian jazz legend Toots Thielemans passed away, aged 94. Forever known in the States as the man from the Sesame Street theme
I had the chance to see him live in 2006, when he was already an octogenarian. He could barely form a coherent sentence, but his playing was so amazing...

I remember Robert in BASEketball. A dumb but funny film. I know he was in the BBC's Hustle. I saw a little of that.
