Mose Allison Coverhappy new year. here’s just something i was listening today, that i downloaded in february last year (already that’s last year!  the annual shock.)  it was new to me (but then so much is… that’s what ya get for listening to radio for years and paying no attention to announcers), and is a bit different than most other jazz vocals that i’ve heard.  i’m definitely going to have to get me some of mose allison’s albums.
