Mississippi piano legend Mose Allison is our selected artist for April’s Record of the Month Club pick. It’s surprising we haven’t picked one of Mose’s LPs before but now is the time. His 1962 release from Atlantic Records, I Don’t Worry About A Thing, is being reissued from the original master tapes and pressed on limited, gold vinyl to celebrate the albums 60th anniversary.
“…the set is one of Mose Allison’s most significant recordings” – All Music
The Penguin Guide to Jazz commented that, with its combination of material, “for some this is the classic Mose album“
From the record label:
This classic album—known as the moment Mose hit his stride in transitioning from iconic pianist to iconic beat-esque vocalist—features the first versions of two of his sharpest pieces (“Your Mind Is On Vacation” & the title track), bluish versions of standards, instrumentals, and more. Celebrating its 60th anniversary, cut all analog from the original mono Atlantic reels!
