Editors’ Notes After the death of legendary New Orleans songwriter Allen Toussaint in 2015, drummer Stanton Moore suspended plans for an upcoming trio album and opted instead for a sprawling Toussaint tribute featuring top-of-the-line guests. The result captures Toussaint’s eclectic and life-affirming spirit with a mix of vocal and instrumental numbers. Trombone Shorty looms large, as do trumpet virtuoso Nicholas Payton and the great Maceo Parker and Cyril Neville. The acoustic-piano trio version of “With You in My Mind” is something to savor.
