Toussaint, Allen – The Bright Mississippi 2 LP set (LP – New)


his brilliant 2009 album featuring a who’s who of Modern jazz stars, including Don Byron, Nicholas Payton, Marc Ribot, David Piltch, Jay Bellerose, Brad Mehldau, & Joshua Redman. Through his work as a producer, composer, arranger and consummate session man, New Orleans native Allen Toussaint has truly earned living-legend status. On The Bright Mississippi, his Nonesuch debut, Toussaint continues to break new ground with his first jazz-oriented set, displaying the same effortless swing and relaxed charm he brought to his classic rock and roll sides. He salutes Big Easy stars of a previous generation, the jazz greats who, in the early 20th century, built the genre from the ground up and turned the ears of the world to New Orleans. Backed by an all-star combo that sounds like a group of

old friends, Toussaint reinterprets classic jazz and blues tunes popularized or written by such New Orleans greats as Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton and Joe “King” Oliver, as well as pieces composed by fellow travelers Django Reinhardt, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk.
This vinyl edition includes two discs pressed on 180-gram high-quality vinyl.
