Old Man Mose is Dead


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
As for MacJams tipping over, I think the reports of it's death have been highly exaggerated (wait, I think someone said that before me!)

As far as I know, Louis Armstrong wrote this in 1930 and that's all I know!

Thanks for listening,

Michael

"Old Man Mose" was written by Louis Armstrong (1930, public domain)
Arrangement/Accompaniment: Bob Boyd Productions
Vocal: Ol' Death Rattle Throat
Backup Singers: The Semi-Fabulous KleinTones

Harald!
No, I am Jewish; used to be Music but converted back in 1981. You are such a sweet man--thank you so very much and really thrilled to be able to get back here again! You take good care now, Michael

Still not dead yet! Nicely done, Michael. Ol' death rattle can rattle a little longer, I reckon. And when do those KleinTones get the promotion to full fabulous? Or did they already get the promotion and used to be semi-tones?

Stephen
It TRULY brightened my week to see you at my song (and thanks so very much for writing me!) Well, said to say Stephen, since this recording date, one of the semi-fabulous Klein-Tones is no longer with us. He was just leaving the studio when he was involved in a freak bus accident. You see, he's a freak and he got hit by a bus. But all seriousness aside, you're on the best friends a chump like me could have, and I so appreciate your supportive energy! Hope to hear you, Yves and Scott cooking up a storm soon! Take care mate! Michael

Hi Michael. Nice to see/hear you back in full force. This week has seen more action than I have seen in a long time. This is a fabulous Satchmo
tune I'm not familiar with ... what great head bopping' swingin' good time.
Your vocals are top notch in this ... I guess the hiatus has done your vocal chords well. Enjoyed and welcome back .... and to think I have been having thoughts of packing it in LOL
Cheers

of old Satchmo by way of Kleinmo is just what this place needs. Great stuff Michael and a reminder of just how much we missed you.
Cheers,

Hooray!
Michael's back! I can't remember hearing the Semi-Fabulous KleinTones before but they are terrific, as are you.
Hope you are somewhat settled in your new digs and that things are going well for both of you. Looking forward to more wonderful MJK offerings in 2013.

It's been too long! So good to hear your swinging sounds around these parts again. I love this song and you more than did it justice. Mose may be dead, but MJ and MJK are alive and well!

Very timely, Michael. I have never heard this one before. Thanks for digging it up for me :-) Some fine articulation on the lead vocal. You did a bang up job with the harmonies, too. Long live the Kleintones! Thanks, my friend. Regards, Peter.

Great performance again.

I'm not happy with the drums in the whole first verse. Just pushing them back would probably already help, but the rhythm feels a bit plodding and insistent to me.

It's like
going to a broadway show, your music surely is. Very theatrical, it like you can visualize actual acting in your choice of sounds. Very pro oriented and you are SUCH a great importance to this site. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Love you championing older songs, I really think it is SO important to not leave the tunes of yesteryear un attended because so many can endure the test of time. And you have raised that torch to such a high level. God bless !

Mose man
You and the clones - I mean Tones - sound in top form as usual. Lively, irreverent and too full of zip to be about death. Great tune Michael.
