City Winery, Downtown Wednesday June 10 2015
A linchpin of the golden age of New Orleans R&B, Toussaint penned and produced some of America's best-loved soul songs, including Lee Dorsey's "Working in the Coal Mine" and Ernie K-Doe's "Mother-in-Law," and he puts on a helluva live show. Here, he serenades the Winery at a roomy headlining gig.
