The sonics here are spectacular. While the piano sound is from the performer’s perspective (you hear what his left and right hands are playing) engineer Ryan Freeland gets a magnificent piano sound, with plenty of room sound behind to create the sensation of being in the room watching Touissant play. It’s a record you’ll feel privileged to repeatedly experience. Highest recommendation Sound 10/10 Music 10/10 Michael Fremer Analogue Planet

Featuring Bill Frisell, Rhiannon Giddens, Charles Lloyd and Van Dyke Parks

The final recording from the late New Orleans legend!

Nonesuch releases American Tunes, a new studio album by legendary New Orleans musician Allen Toussaint. Toussaint had just completed the album when he passed away in November of 2015.

Recording took place at two sets of sessions with producer Joe Henry: solo piano at Toussaint's New Orleans home studio, and with Jay Bellerose, David Piltch, Bill Frisell, Charles Lloyd, Greg Leisz, and guests Rhiannon Giddens and Van Dyke Parks in Los Angeles. There are works by Toussaint, Professor Longhair, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Paul Simon, and others.
