Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "If New Orleans is the source of America's greatest musical gumbo, Allen Toussaint was one of our master chefs....With elegance and grace, Toussaint was a national treasure to the very end."

Paste (magazine) - "From Toussaint's own oeuvre, 'Delores' Boyfriend' is a song you can picture hearing spilling out of any music hall in the Crescent City -- joyful, bouncy, and with trickles of notes noodling out."

Uncut (magazine) - "Fats Waller's 'Viper's Drag' is turned into a wonderfully jaunty Pink Panther prowl....'Confessin' That I Love You' is a played quite straight, with a few Thelonious Monk-ish blue notes and quirky gaps in the melody."
