Musicians, fans celebrate the life of Allen Toussaint at the Orpheum Theater


Brian "Breeze" Cayolle removed his black cowboy hat before performing "Ave Maria" on clarinet. The room ? full of hundreds of mourners at a tribute to Allen Toussaint ? fell a beautiful kind of quiet after a powerful string of performances and shared memories from music luminaries, paying their respects to the giant of New Orleans music and rock 'n' roll.*Cayolle, who performed the alongside Toussaint for several decades and was among his pallbearers, made the reeds weep, sweetly, then he bowed his head.

More than 1,500 fans filled the Orpheum Theater and crowded the street Nov. 20 to pay tribute to the songwriter, who died Nov. 10 after a performance in Spain.?
