Allen Toussaint had it all around him – the voices and spirits of black music, rhythm ’n’ blues, funk and soul. He was born in New Orleans and grew up there, the birthplace of jazz. As from 1960, he worked as a record producer and an A&R man at Minit Records, an independent label, which was closely associated with the transformation of the New Orleans Sound. His compositions for fellow musicians landed them in the charts, he frequently participated by performing with them on the piano, and so became a connoisseur and master of all possible sounds.

Allen Toussaint fut sans doute la personnalité du monde musical la plus emblématique de New Orleans. L’incarnation même de ce que la musique signifie pour cette ville et ses alentours. Certes les génies nés à Big Easy sont légions (Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Jelly Roll Morton, Mahalia Jackson, Sydney Bechet, Dr John, Irma Thomas, Randy Newman…) mais Toussaint symbolisait à la perfection la singulière fusion stylistique locale et la porosité entre les genres. Jazz, soul, rhythm’n’blues, funk, gospel, il plongea ses mains dans toutes ces eaux sans se soucier des frontières et des chapelles puisque, au bout du compte, tout ça était la même chose… Même dans ses actes, Allen Toussaint ne sera jamais monolithique : auteur, compositeur, musicien, interprète, arrangeur, producteur et propriétaire de studio, il touchera à tout !

Allen Toussaint's name became synonymous with New Orleans music, even though he didn't seem to "do" the records his name was on as producer, arranger, or writer on records by artists such as Ernie K-Doe or Irma Thomas. This is his first studio album in at least a decade, and it is a very worthy effort of all self-penned songs that seem to be a mix of old and new (if not in age, at least in feel). He is supported by an extremely worthy cast of the finest New Orleans musicians.
