He has produced such artists as Etta James, Albert King, Chocolate Milk, The Meters, Patti LaBelle, Ramsey Lewis, John Mayall and Dr. John, and has his music recorded and/or performed by the Pointer Sisters, Bonnie Raitt, The Judds, Robert Palmer, Otis Redding, The O’Jays, Boz Scaggs, Johnny Winter, Ringo Starr, Paul Simon, Chet Atkins, Lenny Kravitz, and many others. Even if he wasn’t always the most visible figure, Toussaint’s contributions to New Orleans music and to rock & roll in general were such that he was honored in 1998 with an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.A landmark collaboration between Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint includes seven songs from Toussaints remarkable catalog; five newly written by the two; and one new song written by Costello.
