Allen Toussaint's New Live Solo Album/DVD, Songbook
Allen Toussaint will release, Songbook, a live solo album and DVD on September 24, 2013 via Rounder Records. The album and accompanying DVD include a total of twenty-five songs recorded live over two Fall 2009 performances at Joe's Pub in New York City. The DVD also includes a twenty-five minute in-depth interview with Allen conducted by producer and longtime friend, Paul Siegel. The new album embodies a meaningful concert setting for Allen, as the celebrated venue became his home base for performing after being displaced from New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. Songbook follows Allen's 2010 Grammy-nominated album The Bright Mississippi.
