Mose Allison: Look Here

From 1964, the jazz piano stylings and unique vocals of Mose Allison are this week’s Tasty Licks Tuesday selection. “Look Here” comes from the LP: “The Word from Mose Allison.” Although The Clash later recorded this song in the 80s, their version cannot compare to the original rendition. I just love the little piano fills and runs that he uses. Most people today are not familiar with his work; however, a generation of musicians, including a number of rockers, has been influenced by this native son of Mississippi. At 84, Mose is still singing and playing. I hope you enjoy this jazz great.
