It's been a while since I did a Turntable Thursday post, but what better way to ahem, get back in the groove, but with a post honoring the late, great musician (piano) and producer Allen Toussaint and one of my favorite Toussaint produced albums.

With a career that started in the 50's, Allen Toussaint was a god of American music that originated from New Orleans and influenced the world.

It would be easy to say he defined the New Orleans sound but how can you define a gumbo of influences that includes jazz, blues, rock, R&B and whatever else you can throw in the pot - That's New Orleans.

Toussaint died a few months ago at the age of 77 while on tour in Spain. That may be the perfect way to go if you are a musician - still in demand, doing what you love - not forgotten in some nursing home waiting for a royalty check .

Some you may not have been around to hear his early productions and piano work on the radio, but if your parents listened to the local oldies station, you may vaguely remember songs like Ernie, K. Doe's "Mother in Law" and Lee Dorsey's "Working in the Coal Mine" (Going down,down,down!)...and let's not forget the Neville Brothers.

You know damn well Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny and their band mates owe a lot to this music.

Over the years, Toussaint collaborated with a who's who of rock musicians including The Band, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Boz Scaggs, Willie DeVille and many others.

One of my favorite Toussaint productions was the 1973 album by Dr. John, A.K.A. Mac Rebennack, entitled "In the Right Place", which was also a top 20 hit.

I don't know about you, but if I was in a tie-breaking round of name that tune with a millennial whipper snapper, I could name that song in two notes and bring home the moolah! It features some catchy fuzzy intro riffs by David Spinozza that makes rockers of a certain age smile by just thinking about them.

The rest of the album is a funky mix ( I don't want to say gumbo again - oops I just did!) of swampy R&B powered by the legendary backing band, The Meters and featuring the prodigious piano skills of Mr. Rebennack (Dr. John).

Other strong cuts include "Same Old, Same Old," Life," "Such a Night," and "I Been Hoodood".

Grab yourself a Po' Boy and give this one a spin - it will put you in the right place. ‪#‎TurntableThursday‬ ‪#‎TBT‬
