Working with maverick producer Joe Henry, Allison has found his most sympathetic setting in years, surrounded by young, vibrant players, who add surprising slide guitar and some sinewy saxophone to the classic Mose sound; The Way of ...

5.0 out of 5 stars No such thing as too much of a good thing February 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't know why one doesn't hear more about musicians like Mose Allison. Here's a guy who's been around for years, always making interesting and high-quality music, yet until I picked up PJG, I didn't know who he was. (Okay, so maybe I don't get out as much as I would like...) The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings: Ninth Editionlists Allison's "The Word from Mose" as one of its core collection recordings, but on this set, you get everything from that phenomenal work, plus three more LP's worth of material. And man, this stuff is the bee's knees, I'm telling you! Mose is the quintessential blues man, taking simple songs and simple words and making the feelings - bitterness, disappointment, surprise - come out. He intersperses all his recordings with a few instrumentals to give him a chance or two to focus on his crisp, swinging piano playing. He's not the world's best singer, but he stays within his limitations so that when he's putting together one of his clever iambic pentameter (see Bernstein Century: Bernstein on Jazz - What is Jazz?) lamenting riffs over a standard twelve-bar blues, he's really at his best. The price of this 2-CD set is only a little more than for a single CD, yet it contains four times as much music, so believe me when I say, whether you have or haven't heard of him and his music before, if you like jazz and blues, you can never have too much of Mose Allison. Buy more, save more, be "more happy".

5.0 out of 5 stars Thus Spake The Jazz Sage! November 21, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's a MUST!! Four incomparable Mose albums (Atlantic, early-to-mid-60s) on two CDs. A truckload of classics: "Look Here," "If You're Goin' To The City," "Foolkiller," "Stop This World," "Your Molecular Structure," it just goes on and on. Impeccable jazz and blues and the incomparable lyrics and delivery of one of America's great overlooked wits. Buy this set right now. I'm not kidding. It will be one of the coolest things you've heard in an awful long time, if not ever. Guaranteed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Likely much more appealing for some. October 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is likely a much more exciting album for those who already are excited by Mose Allison. Being more on the jazz end, I see this album as Mose centerstage with jazz as a support. Nice, but not varied or, again, especially exciting.,
