John Chin featuring Richard Julian

Anything Mose!
(Jinsy Records)

Anything Mose! is a tribute to Mose Allison, the legendary Mississippi-born blues and jazz pianist and singer. Led by pianist John Chin and the vocalist Richard Julian, the album offers a straightforward interpretation of Allison classics like “Your Molecular Structure” and “Seventh Son.”

For all their correspondence to the originals, the performances are not dull imitations, as the horn sections on tunes Allison often played develop another layer. The project developed out of Chin and Julian’s mutual respect and admiration for Allison’s music. Thankfully, their collaboration does not sound like a shotgun marriage. These 11 tracks have the polish of a band with the just the right amount of chemistry and passion to re-present Allison for our times.
