Mose Alison (1927 - 2016)
Difficult to 'pigeonhole' this man; Wiki decribes him as a jazz and blues pianist, singer, and songwriter but he was a major influence on some of the biggest names in the pop music of the sixties such as Van Morrison, Georgie Fame, John Mayall, Pete Townshend and many more. In fact, to my ears, Georgie Fame has copied Allison's style of singing.
