Mose Allison (b 11-11-1927 d. 11-15-2016) dead at age 89

American jazz pianist, singer, and composer Mose Allison died today at his home in Hilton Head South Carolina. He combined a sophisticated soloing style on the piano over deceptively simple changes, with ascerbic, dryly humourous, often political lyrics sung in a voice that reflected his upbringing in the Missippi Delta.

In addition to a six decade long career as a jazz musician, Mose Allison's records inspired many future British rock musicians, particularly Pete Townsend of the Who.
