What a year it has been and it ain't over yet, Leon Russell just a few days ago 9/13, to Mose Allison
yesterday 9/15. Mose was as natural a delta blues musician as any one who came before or after him.
Born in the delta, he heard the music of the black workers who labored on his family farm. A pianist,
singer, songwriter, Mose always sounded like himself, never any affectations to which white performers
were prone to when trying to sing blues, his was a clear mellow tone amidst the seeming chaos he could
create on stage, while some, perhaps most, would categorize Mose as jazz, blues was his heart and the
line blurred when he played. What I miss most about these losses is the possibility of a loss of the musical
sensibilities these greats carried and conveyed. I try very hard to sound like it was, not my interpretation of
what or where I think it should go, there are others for which that door is wide open. In preserving the past
we keep the music, and the way it was played, alive.
Regards, Reed
