One of the Greats: Allen Toussaint

He played until the very end. There’s not much I can say about Allen Toussaint that others won't say way better. Modest. Charming. Shy. A class act all around.  I love his music and will always find comfort there. Soul Sister, Southern Nights, the whole Bright Mississippi album, just incredible stuff. NPR is collecting memories from musicians he worked with and influenced here
