Mose Allison, 1927-2016
I was just wondering about jazz/blues poet laureate Mose Allison lately, because I'd heard he had stopped performing. Back in 1992, I took Mose to Yamashiro, high in the Hollywood Hills, to interview him for my "Lunching with Bonzai" column in Mix Magazine. What a sweet, soulful cat. Being with him, and seeing his shows, was comfort food for the soul.
