allen-toussaintEarly this morning a true miracle of the music world left us. He was a renaissance man, songwriter/composer, record producer, and influential figure in New Orleans R&B.

Many of Allen Toussaint’s songs became familiar through versions by other musicians, including “Working in the Coal Mine“, “Ride Your Pony”, “Fortune Teller“, “Play Something Sweet (Brickyard Blues)“, “Southern Nights“, “Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky”, “I’ll Take a Melody”, “Get Out of My Life, Woman” and “Mother-in-Law“.

We will always remember the music and the magic of Mr. Allen Toussaint.
