Tribute to Mose Allison

A tribute to 'the Jazz Sage' Mose Allison, who passed away yesterday morning (15th November 2016) at age 89. Allison struck the perfect balance between New York hipster cool and down-home Mississippi folk wisdom, as he straddled the line between Delta Blues and Modernist Jazz with an easy unpretentiousness. Here are some of of his recordings - the word from Mose himself as well as lovingly crafted renditions of songs by Willie Dixon, Percy Mayfield, Willie Love, Sonny Boy Williamson, Duke Ellington, Johnny Fuller and Ray Noble. Musical edition features almost an hour of Allison wonderland!
