The young award-winning mouth harpist Mathias Heise who won the prestigious Ben Webster Award as the youngest person ever will pay tribute to Toots Thielemans with a memorial concert. Toots Thielemans has set his name in stone in jazz history with his unique skills on the chromatic harmonica. He managed to effortlessly blend bebop with modern jazz. His album "Footprints" from 1990 is a beautiful demonstration of his artistic vision, and with this album as a point of departure Mathias Heise is going to honour one of his role models as well as giving his take on the future direction of the chromatic harmonica. He will be accompanied by Henrik Gunde who is one of the most in-demand jazz pianists in Denmark, and Felix Moseholm who is one of the absolute biggest talents on the double bass. Lastly, drummer Andreas Svendsen who frequently tours with international jazz acts shall lay the foundation for a jazzy night.

Den unge prisbelønnede mundharpist Mathias Heise, der i marts 2017 modtog den prestigefyldte Ben Webster Prisen som den yngste nogensinde, hylder Toots Thielemans med en mindekoncert. Toots Thielemans har sat massive fodspor i jazzhistorien med sin unikke håndtering af den kromatiske mundharpe. På ganske egen hånd formåede han at forene dette besynderlige instrument med bebop og moderne jazz. Hans album "Footprints" fra 1990 er et flot portræt af hans mangfoldige kunstneriske væsen, og med udgangspunkt i disse 'fodspor' vil Mathias Heise ære den gamle mester, men også give et bud på den kromatiske mundharpes næste skridt. Til formålet har han samlet et eminent hold af musikere: Henrik Gunde, en af Danmarks mest efterspurgte jazzpianister, Felix Moseholm, der med sine kun 18 år er et af de store nye håb inden for den stolte danske bastradition og Andreas Svendsen, der har taget sin master på Manhatten School of Music og jævnligt turnerer med store internationale jazznavne.
