Allen Toussaint

Allen Toussaint is one of America's greatest musical treasures, and in August 2009 he was inducted into the Lousiana Music Hall of Fame. Singer, pianist, songwriter, arranger, and producer, the New Orleans native has been making hit records for more than 40 years. His indelible influence on American music reaches deep into the roots of rhythm and blues, pop, country, musical theater, blues, and jazz. Backed by an all-star jazz combo, Allen Toussaint will perform selections from his vast and legendary catalogue, along with tunes from his 2009 release on Nonesuch Records, titled The Bright Mississippi - an album that reinterprets some of the classic New Orleans jazz and blues standards of the past.
