"Allen Toussaint is well on his way to becoming a New Orleans icon, but this great record is certainly not as known as it should be. Toussaint's legendary status as sideman and producer is well documented, but he is also a fine performer. This record contains all the trademarks; stone funky vamps, gorgeous ballads, snappy horn arrangements, superb piano playing and soulful, gentle vocals. Mr. Toussaint is not touring very much, which is New Orleans' gain and our loss...in a just world he would be a mega megastar. "Connected" makes a strong case, and is recommended listening to anybody who wants to know just how good Nawlins pop music can get."
Mr. Toussaint's Music is New Orleans

"A beautiful and diverse album. A little bit of everything that is Toussaint. Only few can touch a piano like him. I once read in an interview that "In Your Love" was one of the songs he was most proud of composing-and for very good reason. If you have not had the pleasure of listening to any of Mr. Toussaint's releases please do. He is not only a legend but a preserver of New Orleans' music and heritage.
I also highly recomend his new Jazzity Project CD entitled "Going Places." It smokes! Jazz the Toussaint way. If you can't find it anywhere check out www.louisianamusicfactory.com"
