I was fortunate enough to see him perform a few years ago, and he was still putting on a great show.

"seventh son" and "your molecular structure" have been stone-cold classics in my house for...... sheesh 20 years now. the coolest. he was jazz but not jazz. something about the sonority of his voice, the fullness of it, reminded me of dusty springfield

RIP. I just got Seventh Son comp a month or so ago and have been loving it. Chose this comp over several other albums the shop had based on the Annie Leibovitz photographs alone. So good.

I've had the 2-disc comp Allison Wonderland since it was released (mid-90s) and rarely go more than a year-or-two between listens; never got into his proper albums, but would appreciate input from anybody who's sifted a bit deeper into his catalog.

Only just realised he had passed when a belated obituary was on the radio earlier. Fucking amazing and unique vocalist, have been blasting out Seventh Son tonight in tribute.

recently got western man and it rules. bill cobham on drums. when it's not totally grooving, it's absolutely heart-rending. see: "how much truth."

I think The Fall's A Figure Walks might be a tribute to Foolkiller.

I know there was a Brian Auger single of the song anyway. Thought I had it on a compilation of their work somewhere. maybe it was the charly compilation i got of them early on. Looks like it was an expanded version of Jools & Brian, possibly a volume of Remembering.

Weird to have a tribute album with no jazz players on it.

Good point, although hopefully Taj will deal with that feel, also maybe incl. right musos---as will Raitt, if it's her original cover, from Takin' My Time: Ernie Watts, Milt Holland, Oscar Brashear etc. appear on there. I wonder if there has been a jazz world tribute? Think Van Morrison's Mose set was one of his Blue Note albums, but I haven't heard it.From 1988, when he was 61 or thereabouts, here he is at the top of his keyboard game, like some blues- bopping Professor Longhair, roque-rolling with it (some vocals too):https://www.npr.org/2013/04/05/176333998/mose-allison-on-piano-jazz
