Allen Toussaint - Songbook

Songbook presents Allen Toussaint as many of his fans have longed to hear him, in an intimate solo setting, performing many of his best-loved songs. His piano playing is a marvel, with its orchestral conception and effortless New Orleans syncopation. But what comes across most strongly is the warmth of Allen's performance. The gentle Creole lilt in his voice brings a resonance and a smile to his songs, rivaling the versions he produced for others.

Recorded live at Joe's Pub in New York, the deluxe edition of Songbook includes a DVD with backstage and studio interviews.
