To begin with, Toussaint grew up in New Orleans with a mother who took care of many different types of musicians who rehearsed and recorded music with her son. When he was 17, Allen played with Earl Kings band in Pritchard in Alabama.

His first record label was RCA Victor – under the name of Al Tousan, he recorded an album of instrumental tracks, among which was the song “Java” (1958), which later became a huge hit in 1964. In the early 1960s, he wrote and produced a number of hit songs for R&B artists from New Orleans such as Ernie K-Doe, Irma Thomas, The Neville Brothers, The Showmen and Lee Dorsey. Some of his songs from this period were published under the pseudonym Naomi Neville – one example out of many would be the song “Ruler of My Heart”, which was recorded by Irma Thomas, and the same song was later recorded under the title “Pain in My Heart” by Otis Redding. From the start of the 1970s he changed his style to a more funky style and wrote songs and produced artists like The Meters and Dr. John. He also began working with artists who do not come from New Orleans, including Solomon Burke, Robert Palmer, Willy DeVille, Elkie Brooks, Mylon LeFevre and the Scottish singer Frankie Miller. All his work added to his net worth.

Moreover, Toussaint also made an attempt to make a solo career. This reached its peak in the 1970s with the albums “From a Whisper to a Scream” and “Southern Nights”. During this period, he teamed with Labelle (all-female singing group) and produced the critically acclaimed album “Night Birds” that came out in 1975, and featured the hit “Lady Marmalade”. The same year he collaborated with Paul McCartney working on the album “Venus and Mars”. In 2009, he released the album “The Bright Mississippi” with Nicholas Payton , Don Byron , Joshua Redman , Brad Mehldau and Marc Ribot. The magazine Rolling Stone listed the album in the 100 best jazz albums at No. 82 (2013). The disco Graf Tom Lord lists Toussaint in the field of jazz rhythm and blues (1957 – 2012) with a total of 50 recording sessions.

Finally, in the personal life of Toussaint, was single but had been married and apparently had three children. Allen Toussaint died on the 10th November 2015 in Madrid, Spain while on a tour in Europe. In 2016, he was titled Pinetop Perkins Piano Player during the Blues Music Awards.
