I see where one of my favorite jazz vocalists, Mose Allison, just joined the eternal big band. I learned a lot about the blues listening to Mose.

Speaking of overtime pay, a few years back I featured Mose’s great critique of people who talk more than they should: “Your mind’s on vacation but your mouth is working overtime.”
