Yes We Can Can (Allen Toussaint tribute session)

Legendary songwriter, recording artist, arranger and producer, Allen Toussaint, passed away on 10 November 2015. Even if you're not familiar with his name, you'll almost certainly know his work – as well as releasing great material in his own name most notably in the 1970s, his career spanned five decades in which he wrote, recorded, arranged or produced seminal tracks for the likes of Irma Thomas, Lee Dorsey, Betty Harris, Dr John, The Meters and more. Tracks of his have been covered by the likes of The Band, Three Dog Night and Warren Zevon, to name but a few.

We celebrate his legacy by playing a bunch of records that, together, go some way to showcasing the musical genius of the late, great Saint of New Orleans.
