Allen Toussaint: Heartwarming Jazz

A New Orleans pianist, vocalist, producer and songwriting legend — and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee — Allen Toussaint recently stopped by the KPLU/Jazz24 studios for a visit, taking us on a sweet and uplifting trip home with his music and anecdotes.

In the past, Toussaint has worked with artists such as Fats Domino, Lee Dorsey, Glen Campbell and Elvis Costello, to name a few. In this session, he performs three songs, including his hit "What Do You Want the Girl to Do?"
