    Mose Allison had the coolest vocal delivery. Great piano style as well. He always had excellent supporting musicians.

    Very cool guy - loved his smokey vocals and cool understated piano.

    Got to see him live at the Pizza Express Jazz Bar in Soho - must have been 20 years ago - great evening and he had a stellar bass player and drummer.

    Great to see this posting. Important and influential musician who didn't get the kind of air play he deserved. Here's a Greg Brown song about some of the less glamorous parts of playing on the road describing one particularly gritty bar or club but in the end he's proud to be there because "once last November Mose Allison played here".
