Toots Thielemans: What makes jazz? Jazz is that feeling...

MUSIC: up for a phrase

NEA Jazz Master Toots Thielemans.

I close my eyes... and it makes me feel good when people are there, you know. It doesn't matter how many sometimes. An audience of two people can give you more than an audience of five thousand.

MUSIC: up and fades

This Jazz Moment with harmonica virtuoso Toots Thielemans was created by the National Endowment for the Arts.
