I can't stop listening to Allen Toussaint's, "The Bright Mississippi."  If you only buy one jazz album from 2009 this is it.  Toussaint, who is mostly known as an R & B pianist, is joined by Joshua Redman (tenor saxophone), Nicholas Payton (trumpet) in this album that is soon to be a classic.

Nominated for a Grammy as Best Instrumental Jazz Album, The Bright Mississippi, blends New Orleans swing, blues and soul in a way that will delight any jazz fan while not out of reach for jazz dabblers.
