Anything Mose! The Mose Allison Project with Richard Julian & The John Chin Quartet

With vocalist/guitarist Richard Julian, pianist/organist/keyboard player John Chin, saxophonist Stacy Dillard, bassist Matt Pavolka, and drummer Dan Rieser

“He was the thread that connected Willie Dixon and Mark Twain” – producer Joe Henry

Tonight we celebrate NEA Jazz Master Mose Allison. A true one-of-a-kind, Allison was a pianist, singer, and sharp musical storyteller known for his incisive lyrics and smooth blend of jazz and Delta blues. Though widely respected in pure jazz and blues crowds, Allison’s wry songwriting was also immensely influential to decades of rock and folk artists; his songs have been recorded by The Yardbirds, John Mayall, The Clash, The Kinks, Diana Krall, Paul Butterfield, Bobbie Gentry, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Rait, and others. Though he never reached the same heights of mainstream stardom as some of these famous fans, the diversity, integrity, and huge popularity of the artists who adored him is telling. This performance is part of an ongoing tribute project co-led by vocalist/guitarist Richard Julian, whom NPR calls “a true soul singer and an astonishing storyteller in the vein of Randy Newman or Paul Simon;” and bandleader John Chin, a versatile pianist who plays with many of the best jazz artists in town. Both Julian and the John Chin Quartet approach this music with great respect to the song-craft and attitude of the original music without attempting to imitate it, giving audiences a thoughtful and contemporary take on Allison’s profound yet broadly enjoyable source material. They even spent time with Allison’s family at his home and have the family’s full endorsement for this loving tribute.
