A Musical Profile Of Allen Toussaint - The Early Years

05/22/10 8:00PM By Joel Najman

Andy Grigg of Real Blues Magazine writes "Allen Toussaint is New Orleans. The 'Number One' music man of the Crescent City is carrying the torch passed to him by Professor Longhair. Singer song-writer, pianist, producer, arranger, label owner... mover, shaker and shaper. Virtually every major artist and every hit record to come out of New Orleans since early 1960's has had the 'Toussaint touch' shaping it." 
A 1998 inductee in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, Allen Toussaint will headline on Saturday June 5th at Burlington's Discover Jazz Festival.
This week Joel Najman's My Place program presents a musical profile of Allen Toussaint with emphasis on his many famous rhythm & blues  hits as songwriter, arranger, and producer.
