Mose Allison’s new album and ANTI- debut The Way of the World arrives March 23rd, 2010, marking his return to the recording studio after a 12 year absence. Working with maverick producer Joe Henry, Allison has found his most sympathetic setting in years, surrounded by young, vibrant players, who add surprising slide guitar and some sinewy saxophone to the classic Mose sound; The Way of ...

Allison's Sublime 6 Feb 2001
By Tay Brannin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been waiting for this one to come out on CD since I got my first CD player in '89. Man it's about time. What's really made the wait difficult is that my phonograph hasn't been pluged in for over 10 years so I haven't even been able to listen to my LP either. Since I'm not much of a writer I'll just sufice it to say: If you love New Orleans Jazz, High energy piano jazz and entertaining lyrics, you'll love Mose Allison. If you love Mose Allison you've got to have this recording because I think it is one of his best!

Perfect Moment 20 Aug 2012
By Hank Lawler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I played with Mose Allison in the 70's at Paul's Mall and the Jazz Workshop in Cambridge, Mass. All us green cats from Berklee flocked to see him regularly and sat in with him when he allowed. I always asked for Perfect Moment and he would heave a sigh and acquiesce and I was in Heaven. 40 years later at a small venue in Traverse City, MI., he played at their community college. I went backstage and caught him in his dressing room with his trio and asked if he would play Perfect Moment. His answer, "Oh Christ, not you again..we don't do it. These cats don't know it.." The concert ended to a standing ovation and the encore was Perfect Moment and those cats faked it beautifully.

You cannot help smiling when Mose sets to his business. Fantastic music by an American Classic. If you have not heard the title song, your bucket list just grew one item longer.

If you listen to only one Mose Allison CD (and you'd be foolish to limit yourself to just one), make it this one. You'll laugh (the title track), you'll ponder deep thoughts and emotions (Perfect Moment), and you'll experience a totally unique national treasure.

Mose, now 86, recently retired from live performances. I was fortunate to be able to see him about 30 times at various jazz clubs over a span of about 35 years. He was in his prime when these songs were recorded, but that is simplifying things, as he has had numerous "primes" with slightly different styles throughout his long career.

The following is the part of his recording career I like best, particularly his live albums during this time.

Mose Allison: Mose Alive! – 1965 (You have to hear this version of "I Love the Life I Live", it's so full of live jazz club atmosphere that you can actually hear the ice clinking in a glass as someone sitting next to the stage enjoys a drink. Nice touch, the song is perfect!
