Allen Toussaint Jun 28, 2016
"A beautiful collection of tracks that showcase his love of music no matter the genre. It's fitting that he and his band cover two Duke Ellington tunes. After all, it was Ellington who opined, 'There are two kinds of music: good music and the other kind.' By far, this album is the former." —Paste Magazine
Allen Toussaint Jun 21, 2016
"[O]n the brilliant American Tunes ... you hear a love of blues, traditional pop, gospel, jazz and more. Sure, there is a glorious New Orleans accent through it all. But American Tunes asserts Toussaint's role as an Americana journeyman as opposed to that of an ambassador of a single city or sound." —Lexington Herald-Leader

Allen Toussaint Jun 13, 2016
"In my experience with him over 10 years, he was grace-filled and trusting in a grace that’s bigger and knows more than we do. I don’t know of any musician who doesn’t want to get there—not only as a musician, but as a human being." —Producer Joe Henry on Allen Toussaint, Los Angeles Times

Allen Toussaint Jun 07, 2016
