Mose Allison to Appear at Movable Feast Shows in LA

Legendary singer-pianist to appear in series sponsored by Jazz Bakery on January 16-17

Tessa Souter

On Saturday and Sunday, January 16 and 17, Mose Allison will perform in Los Angeles as part of the Movable Feast concert series presented by Ruth Price and the folks at The Jazz Bakery, a venue currently without a permanent home. The shows will be presented at the Coronet Theater at Largo, the uber-hip LA nightspot, located at 366 N. Cienga Boulevard. Shows are at 8pm and 9:30pm. The phone number for reservations is 310-271-9039. For more information, you can also visit the Jazz Bakery web site.
