Allen Toussaint

Allen Toussaint

Time Out says

If anyone can lay claim to being New Orleans royalty, then surely it's Allen Touissant. There are few this R'n'B master hasn't collaborated with - Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, The Band, The Rolling Stones - and his list of songwriting credits include 'Working in the Coalmine' and 'Fortune Teller'. Comfortably into his seventies, now's the time to catch this living musical legend, though the four shows in two days he's doing for Tokyo Billboard suggest he's not resting on his laurels just yet.
