Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne and Iggy pop are just a few of the artists who have paid tribute to the music of Mose Allison on a new project ‘If You’re Going To The City: A Tribute To Mose Allison’.

Costello has recorded his part in the project for Mose’s daughter Allison. “Mose’s singular style- a unique blend of jazz and blues, his incisive humor, and knack for distilling deep themes into simple potent lyrics made him a major influence on a generation of musicians. It didn’t take much convincing for the producers (Don Heffington and Sheldon Gomberg) to bring a host of top artists onboard. Each artist chose a favorite Mose Allison song to interpret,” Allison said in a statement.

American jazz great Mose Allison died in 2016 at the age of 89. His music influenced Jimi Hendrix, JJ Cale, Tom Waits, The Rolling Stones and The Who.

The album features Taj Mahal, Robbie Fulks, Jackson Browne, The Tippo Allstars feat. Fiona Apple, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, Chrissie Hynde, Iggy Pop, Bonnie Raitt, Loudon Wainwright III, Richard Thompson, Peter Case, Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin, Anything Mose!, Frank Black, and Amy Allison with Elvis Costello.
