The Legendary Allen Toussaint

RIP to the GREAT Allen Toussaint. A true Music Man. Allen Toussaint

I don’t have to go into the lengthy bio or the thousands of songs he wrote, co-wrote, arranged and produced over the years but just know this is a huge loss to the music community, most especially New Orleans. A couple years back John Schreffler and I did a demo of “Ruler of My Heart”, written by Toussaint and made famous by the Soul Queen of New Orleans, Irma Thomas. I hope you enjoy it and I hope you keep playing and making music. This man didn’t stop until the day he died. On tour. In Spain. At the age of 77. May we all be so blessed. RIP, dear soul. What a gift you have given us.
