JazzGuitarLife.com Interview with Mark Mosley: This interview was conducted via email November, 2004.
JGL: At what age did you first get into guitar playing and were you interested in jazz from the beginning or were there other musical interests before jazz?
MM: At age 11, other musical interests included learning how to play a convincing blues by copying B.B. King and listening to cats like Jimmy Reed, Elmore James and others through my dad.
...despite his more delicate touch, Mosley is a traditionalist, a hard-swinging blues player...He’s also an idealist; Mosley will tell you as he plays that he believes in spreading jazz because it’s the most perfect representation of democracy...
