Remembering Aaron Moore

"Aaron Moore, a formidable blues and boogie-woogie piano player who grew up on a Mississippi plantation and forged his musical career in Chicago, died Nov. 27 of cancer at Rush University Medical Center at age 95, according to his wife, Katie Moore," Howard Reich reported for the Tribune earlier this month.

"Though Aaron Moore was considered a virtuoso pianist and a mighty vocalist by blues connoisseurs, he didn't attain the global fame of the musicians he often backed, such as Little Walter, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, B.B. King and David 'Honeyboy' Edwards. In part, this was because Moore worked a day job for the City of Chicago for 36 years, playing music on the side."


"One of the reasons Moore didn't achieve the notoriety of his colleagues was because he refused to jack in his day-job with the City of Chicago's sanitation department, which he held for 36 years," The Blues Magazine reports.


Moore was "said to be the last Mississippi-born blues pianist in Chicago."


In 2008 at the University of Chicago Folk Festival.
