Mose Allison, 89 Years Old, dies.

Mose Allison wasn’t a guitar player. He played piano, sang and played jazz and blues and wrote great lyrics. He turned 89 on November 10th, 2016, five days before he passed away.

Two of my favorite tunes from Mose Allison are Your Molecular Structure – which appeals to my first career as a scientist, and Your Mind is on Vacation (but your mouth is working overtime) which should appeal to anyone who has to put up with someone who blathers on about nothing.
