The saddest thing about Allen Toussaint passing is not just that we never get to see him live again, not that we never get a chance to hear a new perfectly written song...it's that there are people walking this earth who have no clue about him. People living here in New Orleans who are clueless about his influence in music for 50+ years. They do not know how this man is responsible for so many unique sounds, beautifully written songs...so many songs and song productions. He had his hands in everything! And he was the epitome of class and grace. Take a moment to sit your kids down and play a tune of his...any tune. Explain to them that this man is a New Orleans legend.
