More Info

Mose Allison's singular style - a unique blend of jazz and blues, his incisive humour, and knack for distilling deep themes into simple potent lyrics made him a major influence on a generation of musicians. It didn’t take much convincing for the producers to bring a host of top artists onboard, including Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop, Fiona Apple, Tah Mahal, Ben Harper, Frank Black, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and more. Each artist chose a favorite Mose Allison song to interpret.
