American Tunes out today

Today Allen Toussaints final record 'American Tunes' is out on Nonesuch Records.

"When Allen left the studio on the last day of recording, he was buoyant," Henry says. "He was so proud of the work. He made sure that I understood that. He said, 'I'm elated about what's happened.'" ' Parting gift'
In the article 'Parting gift' we learn how, looking back, a lot of these recordings almost didn't happen.

But the following article, is a must-read : music aficionado

I found it so moving to read... It is an interview with Joe about working and being with Allen. It ended with Joe's personal story of hearing the sad news of Allen's passing. I got really quiet after reading that....

Also make sure to check the Joe Henry Blog for more reviews and articles.
And definitely read Josh Hurst's review : Like the stories told of old.

Dear Mr Toussaint : Thank you for your music, You will be missed. 

Oh, and it's alright, it's all right, it's all right
You can't be forever blessed
Still, tomorrow's going to be another working day
And I'm trying to get some rest
That's all I'm trying to get some rest

American Tune, Paul Simon
