Some last minute requests followed by Late Night Phil. Tonight: Mose Allison

Mose John Allison Jr. Born - November 11, 1927, died November 15, 2016. Born in Mississippi, Mose was a jazz and blues pianist, singer, and songwriter. In New York in the 50's, he worked mainly in jazz settings, playing with musicians like Stan Getz, Al Cohn, and Zoot Sims.

He is described as having been "one of the finest songwriters in 20th-century blues." His songs were strongly dependent on evoking moods, with his individualistic, "quirky", and subtle ironic humour. Well-known fans recorded his songs, among them Pete Townshend, who recorded his "Young Man Blues" for the Who's "Live At Leeds" album in 1970. John Mayall was one of dozens who recorded his classic, "Parchman Farm", and the Godfather of UK Soul Georgie Fame recorded a song called Mose Knows on Swan Songs, his final album released. 2015. Leon Russell and Bonnie Raitt have also recorded Allison compositions.

Mose Allison died of natural causes on November 15, 2016, four days after his 89th birthday, at his home in South Carolina.
