On October 4, the eclectic New Orleans band Bonerama, with help from veteran pop/R&B singer Michael McDonald, will release a new song via Basin Street Records that pays tribute to the late Allen Toussaint. Penned by Mark Mullins, Bonerama’s bandleader and one of its three trombonists, “Empty World” was written soon after the November 2015 passing of Toussaint, the pianist, songwriter, singer, and producer who was a pillar of the New Orleans music scene for decades. You can see a video containing a clip of the song below.
