Pianist Allen Toussaint translates the peace of Big Easy

One of the most underrated musicians of modern American music, Allen Toussaint is vintage New Orleans personified. His silky speaking voice is as smooth as the music he has so eloquently orchestrated for the past five and a half decades. In addition to the lush and lavish beauty that comes from Toussaint’s genius, he also serves as a key to an incredible musical past, rich with a history that rivals any exhibition at the Smithsonian.
