Mose Allison: Mose Knows, The Oracle of Jazz, and more...

Mose Allison's name is synonymous with jazz although many think of him as a blues musician. His show is definitely New York jazz-trio-ish, so thats that.

He's up there - 80 years old - but he has an amazing way to turn a phrase into social commentary with a cutting edge. His voice never was something special - kind of a sqawky half talk half yell sometimes thing but the passion is all over the place.

See a few more photos I took and the review I posted at my Colorado Springs Gazette's  Soundboard blog entry.
