Description

Allen Toussaint (born January 14, 1938) is an American musician, songwriter and record producer. One of the most influential figures in New Orleans R&B, many of Toussaint’s songs have become familiar through their numerous cover versions, including “Working in the Coalmine”, “Ride Your Pony”, “Brickyard Blues”, “Get Out My Life Woman”, “Southern Nights” and “Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky”.

Henry Butler (born September 21, 1949) is an American jazz pianist. Butler was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Butler left New Orleans and relocated to Colorado, where he still resides.. He is known for his prodigious technique and his ability to play in many styles of music. Butler has recorded for several record labels, including Impulse Records, Windham Hill, and Basin Street Records. Blinded by glaucoma since birth, Butler has not stopped pursuing photography as a hobby; some of his photos have been shown in galleries in New Orleans.

Jon Cleary: Cleary, born in England, is an adopted son of the Crescent City, who’s made good his citizenship with five soul-soaked R&B funk albums with the Absolute Monster Gentlemen. As a session man, he’s played with Taj Mahal, B.B. King and Bonnie Raitt, to name a few, and is a longstanding member of Raitt’s touring band. Musically, though, his heart and soul reside on the banks of the Mississippi.

Note: All performers are performing solo (without bands).
