There aren’t many jazz greats of Mose Allison’s caliber and pedigree left in this world. He’s played with Zoot Sims, Stan Getz, and Phil Woods. He’s inspired rock and roll greats from Jimi Hendrix to the Pixies and The Who. The rare pianist who can play and sing great jazz with sardonic wit to top it all off, seeing Allison in Colorado Springs is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The show is in Armstrong Hall on the Colorado College campus at the corner of Cache La Poudre and Cascade at 8 p.m. KRCC Member tickets are available at the station, 912 N. Weber, from 9 to 5 today and tomorrow for $24. General public tickets are $30. Everyone pays $35 at the door. There are also $50 meet-and-greet VIP tickets available in advance. Tickets are also available at www.amusiccompanyinc.com.
