Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint

The River in Reverse


Ricardo Baca

With Costello and Toussaint sharing the songwriting and playing, this album is a shoo-in as a late-career bloom for both music legends.

Costello has waxed prolific lately, but this subtle work, laden with B3 organ, is his most significant project since 2002's "When I Was Cruel." Toussaint, who penned R&B hits "Working in a Coalmine," "Get Out of My Life Woman" and "Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky (From Now On)," has performed for five decades, going back to his days with producer Dave Bartholomew laying down tracks at recording sessions for Fats Domino.

Their collaborations are special, including "Broken Promise Land," an accomplishment as soulful as it is playful, and "The Sharpest Thorn." But the most moving track on this sweeping, gospel-influenced disc is Toussaint's "All These Things," a lush homage to the music of his '60s heyday.
