V/A: ROLLING WITH THE PUNCHES: ALLEN TOUSSAINT S/BOOK

$42.00

Description

It should surprise no-one that Allen Toussaint has been added to Aces songwriter series. In a career thats in its seventh decade, this quietly spoken, modest son of New Orleans has written some of the greatest hits ever to grace the Great American Songbook. -Rolling With The Punchesî is a compilation that celebrates Allens glittering career in a rounded and highly appropriate manner. Other anthologies of his work as a songwriter have tended to be built around the numbers he wrote during the first 10 years of his career – and these titles such as ´Ride Your Pony, ´Fortune Teller and ´Working In The Coal Mine are also included here. However, rather than massively duplicate what those other collections have to offer, this one focuses primarily on the later songs Allen penned in a period when he was looking beyond the constraints of the 3-minute single and moving his writing in new directions. One of the most exciting compilations of 2012.
