Rest in Peace Allen Toussaint. I’m not sure where I first learned of Allen Toussaint. It could have been a writers credit off of the Frankie Miller album, “Highlife”, which had the song “Brickyard Blues” that I just loved. I followed Toussaint’s work over the years and had vinyl copies of “Southern Nights” and “Motion” in my collection.
This is a great interview from NPR’s Song Travels with Michael Feinstein.
