Mose Allison: The Mose Chronicles: Live In London, Volume 2 (2002)
Jim Mullen’s blues guitar interludes make a big difference for this volume. As expressive as Allison’s – but in a different way – the guitarist’s solos ooze with deep emotion. The pianist, on the other hand, always adds a lighter, rhythmic flair to his interludes. Each of his solos creates an energetic romp that further amplifies his quirky singing style. Allison is a storyteller. The energy and wit he delivers keeps you on your toes.
