Context

In 2022, we will celebrate the 100th birthday of Toots Thielemans with a real ‘Toots Year’. Various events will take place in Belgium, including the immersive exhibition Toots 100. The Sound of a Belgian Legend, from 22 April 2022 until 31 August 2022 at KBR.

KBR will also host a colloquium devoted to research on and around Toots Thielemans. Besides the academic part, a special concert has been scheduled, in collaboration with the jazz departments of Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel and Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles.

We welcome all research into the various aspects of Toots Thielemans, his life, work, reception, and the multicultural contexts in which they took place. We encourage multidisciplinary approaches and a diversity of perspectives.
