Yesterday, Allen Tousaint passed away after playing a concert Monday night in Madrid, Spain. Toussaint was a a prolific song writer, performer, and producer. His contributions to music are numerous. He nurtured and produced some of my favorite New Orleans artists like The Meters, Earnie-K-Doe, and Dr. John. Thank you for enriching the lives of so many, you will be missed.
