Shuffle Aces: Allen Toussaint – It’s Raining

I first heard this when listening to the fantastic Sound Opinions podcast that I’ve mentioned here before. They were interviewing Allen Toussaint, a 76-year-old American musician, composer, record producer, and influential figure in New Orleans R&B scene. Many of his songs are better known for the versions other artists have recorded, so it’s nice to showcase this track – a beautifully performed track from his 2013 album Songbook.

You can find all the Shuffle Ace tracks – including this one – on a Spotify playlist here.

Shuffle Aces is a series of posts that highlights a song of the week that “shuffling” has brought forth. With all the streaming services it’s not just an iPod on shuffle mode that we use to discover new stuff, but the principle remains the same: hit play and wait to see what gems come forth.
