Goodbye To New Orleans' Finest: The Great Allen Toussaint

Sad news today. The wonderful Allen Toussaint, songwriter, pianist and recording producer extraordinaire, has passed at 77.

Decided NOT to have this become the "R.I.P. Blog" quite some time ago, but in this case - as I did for satirist Stan Freberg - the music lovers at Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog shall make an exception.

Here's just a little taste of beautiful jambalaya sounds by Mr. Toussaint.

R.I.P. to a man who made Planet Earth a better place.

Adieu and most of all, THANK YOU, Allen! And thank you, New Orleans!
