Toussaint In The News, On The Air
Mr. Toussaint continues to get good, well-deserved press and segments on NPR and American Routes. If you have not already seen it, the Times-Picayune has a great article on his collaboration on Elvis Costello's new album in progress, which will feature mostly Toussaint tunes hand-picked by Costello for quality and relative obscurity (to those who don't partake of HOTG, anyway). You can read about it here.
Even though the only New Orleans players on it will be Toussaint and a great horn line-up, I can't wait to hear that project, as Costello wants to keep the arrangements of the covers close to the originals.
