Let’s listen to something different today. One of the leading
figures in the New orleans soul field was without doubt the
late and great Allen Toussaint. As musician, songwriter,
arranger and record producer he made a permanent
name. Read his Wiki-page and learn. By the way,
don’t you just love that cover ?

Laten we vandaag eens luisteren naar iets heel anders. Eén van
de meest invloedrijke figuren in de soul scene van New Orleans
was zonder twijfel Allen Toussaint. Als muzikant, song schrijver,
arranger en Producer vestigde hij zich en maakte een onuitwisbare
naam voor zichzelf. Lees zijn Wiki-pagina en leer. Overigens,
is die hoes niet onweerstaanbaar mooi ?

Dear Global Groover,
Until now we have been posting only Tropical Musicstyles at
‘Global Groove’, and ofcourse we shall continue to do so.
The blog’s title, however, indicates that we shall also start
to blend in some genres, looking from a broader perspective.
Black Music, in general, always had my first attention, and from
today I’ll post some other black styles too, like New Orleans Soul.
This album has always been one of my favourites, listen !
