Allen Toussaint

2013 release from the musical icon who helped to shape the sound of New Orleans. As a composer, arranger, producer, pianist and singer, Allen has created an enduring body of work. Songbook presents Allen Toussaint as many of his fans have longed to hear him, in an intimate solo setting, performing many of his best-loved songs. His piano playing is a marvel, with its orchestral conception and effortless New Orleans syncopation. But what comes across most strongly is the warmth of Allen's performance. The gentle Creole lilt in his voice brings a resonance and a smile to his songs, rivaling the versions he produced for others.
