Stanton Moore: "With You In Mind — The Songs of Allen Toussaint" will be released tomorrow. Listen to "Java" from the album at americansongwriter.com. Link in bio. //
Allen Toussaint's songwriting talents created R&B-based music adaptable to artists as varied as The Yardbirds, Robert Palmer, Devo, Elvis Costello and countless others who covered his songs in a variety of genres. Stanton Moore takes a heavily jazz and funk-oriented stab at a handful of them, turning in vivid, vivacious performances that further expand Toussaint’s already elastic boundaries on this inventive covers collection that’s as classy and sophisticated as the artist.
