Allen Toussaint's Home Going
Southern nights Have you ever felt a Southern night Free as a breeze, not to mention the trees Whistling tunes that you know and love so
Southern Nights Allen Toussant
New Orleans knows how to send people off to the after life like no other place on earth. It's a celebration with food, alcohol, music and the traditional jazz funeral/second line. I was truly blessed to be at Allen Touissant's that was held at the Orpheum with some of the greatest talent of the world, Cyril Neville, Deacon John, Irma Thomas, Davel Crarford, Boz Skaggs, Jimmy Buffet, Dr. John, Trombone Shorty, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and his long time collaborator/partner Elvis Costello. This day holds one of the greatest live moments in my musical rolodex was my friend John Boutte hitting notes I hadn’t heard before or heard since!
