Verified Purchase. I bought this as a gift, my son in law loved it! Allen Tousaint is one of those figures in the world of Soul and Funk who never had a career in the full spotlight. He rather chose to be behind the curtain writing and producing. In doing so Toussaint was a major force behind the development of the Crescent City Sound in the sixties.
Although he had something of a solo career in that decade he didn't get it properly started until the seventies. Where From a Whisper still leaned heavily into material he originally written for others, Life, Love and Faith would be Toussaint's first album that stood on its own.
Instead of producing for the Meters, the legendary funk band became his backing group on this outing adding a horn section. As many of his contemporaries Toussaint moved away from safe grounds.
The album dealt with adult themes. Relational song gained depth and Toussaint asserted himself politically. Listening to the record now it is a mystery. Life, Love and Faith contains solid song writing, moving, catching and still relevant.
The music is funky, light and breezy yet manages to grab your attention, keep you focussed. It is music in service of the song yet exhilarating. Anyone who enjoyed that album will certainly enjoy this album; anyone who loves classic Soul will love it.
