Allison comes on like a cocktail mixture of down home southerner and penthouse sophisticate: he's a mint juleped martini and he's managed to keep his career going for decades, despite not quite fitting into any one category. Allison's a very white bluesman, with humor too biting for the sensitive Singer-Songwriter set, and despite starting out playing with Stan Getz, he's considered too "commercial" by some small-minded jazz fans. Luckily, such rock era artists as Tom Waits, Pete Townshend, Bonnie Raitt, and especially Van Morrison who has recorded a whole album of his tunes have kept royalties in Allison's pocket and his name in the public eye.

Allison's latest albums have confronted life and love in old age with equal doses of wit and sadness. Generations who once thought they "hope they die before they get old" will be scooping them up very soon. Nick Dedina.

Mose Allison , a pianist, singer and songwriter who straddled modern jazz and Delta blues, belonging to both styles even as he became a touchstone for British Invasion rockers and folksy troubadours, died on Tuesday at his home in Hilton Head, S.

He was His death was confirmed by the singer and songwriter Amy Allison, his daughter. Allison began his professional career as a piano player, at a time when his style — percussive and jaunty, carried along by a percolating beat — suited the sound of the jazz mainstream. In addition to leading his own trio, he worked with some of the major small-group bandleaders of the late s, including the saxophonists Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan.

For the next 50 years he worked almost exclusively as the leader of his own groups. Allison used his cool, clear voice to conversational effect, with an easy blues inflection that harked back to his upbringing in rural Mississippi.

Backing himself at the piano, he favored a loose call and response between voice and instrument, or between right and left hands, often taking tangents informed by the complex harmonies and rhythmic feints of bebop. His artistic persona, evident in his stage manner as well as his songs, suggested a distillation of folk wisdom in a knowing but unpretentious package. He was especially revered by s English rockers who idolized the blues, and who saw in his example an accessible ideal.

  6. Mose Allison is a fine, Bop-influenced pianist with a light, thin voice who happens to be a crackerjack songwriter and performer -- think of Loudon Wainwright III fronting the Nat Cole Trio.

  7. Mose Allison is the exception; he's still, as he approaches eighty years of age, an undeservedly overlooked and under-rated talent.
