Allen Toussaint
Allen Toussaint
Pianist Allen Toussaint is one of the most influential figures in New Orleans R&B. His playing has what he calls "flairs of Fess" -- a reference to Professor Longhair, patron saint of the New Orleans piano faculty. From Boogie-Woogie and jazz to ballads and blues, Toussaint plays them all amidst crafty horn arrangements.

Toussaint got his shot as a solo artist with a record for RCA. Two of his earliest tunes, "Java," which became a mega-hit for trumpeter Al Hirt and "Whipped Cream," the Herb Alpert hit, became instrumental standards. He continued to put his mark on the music business with his arrangements on Patti LaBelle's hit, "Lady Marmalade", continuing on with her through the early stages of her solo career and crossing paths with many other music giants in the course of his illustrious 40+ year music career. He has produced, written for, arranged, had his songs covered by, and performed with music giants Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Patti LaBelle, Etta James, and countless others.

Toussaint was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in February 2011.
