Update on November 15, 2016: Mose Allison has died at the age of 89.

Mose Allison started off as Stan Getz's piano player and in the more than fifty years since he got his start he's become one of the most influential blues and jazz songwriters in pop music. At 82, he's released a new album produced by Joe Henry, called The Way of The World, and while he was at the piano in Studio A he told me that after all these years getting up on stage hasn't lost its thrill.
