#RIP Mort du grand musicien neo-orléanais #AllenToussaint a 77 ans (#FullAlbum ‎– Life Love And Faith LP 1972 ) #GreatBlackMusic - RTS

Allen Toussaint, l'une des figures les plus influentes de la musique de la Nouvelle-Orléans, est décédé ce lundi à l'âge de 77 ans alors qu'il était en Europe.

Toussaint était à Madrid et est mort d'une crise cardiaque à son hôtel, juste après son concert ce lundi. S'étant produit régulièrement dans sa ville natale ces dernières semaines, il venait de débuter une tournée européenne.

Pianiste, chanteur, compositeur et arrangeur, Allen Toussaint a commencé sa carrière en 1958. Il a accompagné les plus grands artistes de Louisiane, comme Fats Domino et, en produisant les Meters ou Dr. John, il a très largement contribué à façonner le "son" de la Nouvelle-Orléans.

Avec les plus grands

Figurent également à son très riche "tableau de chasse", des artistes internationaux comme  Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker, Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton, ou encore Elvis Costello.

C'est également lui qui a produit le fameux "Lady Marmalade" de Labelle en 1974.
