Product Description

CD Description

Startlingly remastered at Abbey Road, two of Moondog's key albums, and a kind of summation of his work throughout the 1950s, when he was homeless and performing on the streets of New York. This is Moondog at his most direct, original, fresh, playful and let-it-be-said unpretentious — featuring the Honking Geese, Tony Schwartz's brilliant outdoors recordings (particularly improved in Honest Jon's new version), with interventions from a ship's foghorn, a tapdancer and a cocker spaniel, and signature rhythms for trimba, oo, tuji, yukh, and ostrich feathers. Andy Warhol's mother got it straight, on the original Prestige cover of Story — 'Moondog is a poet who versifies in sound, a diarist overcome by love, curiosity and amusement by everything that reaches his ears, all of which he transposes into a symphony of himself. It may be the roar from the streets; it may be the casual chatter in a room or, best of all, it will be that secret music that seeps through imagination and memory. These experiences, so dull to the dull but so alive to him, he orchestrates into a record of those enchanting conversations everyone can hold with himself would he only listen for a bemused moment. They make up the script of that unique tragi-comedy, the story of anyone's life. Pricking up our ears would be so easy, yet it is seldom done. But when Moondog compels us to do it, we are entranced and delivered willingly into new worlds of meaning.'

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dogman Cometh 7 Feb 2001
By Michael Agostino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If this is your first introduction to Moondog, you won't be disappointed. He's a percussionist, as far as I can tell, using all sorts of sounds from the streets of NYC. It's not jazz really, or orchestration, although it can be compared to both. It is clean, quiet, percussion more than anything else. One voice with no eyes. Dig it.

5.0 out of 5 stars world music from a world of Moondog's own 21 Mar 2003
By I X Key - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This music is sectioned under jazz, but it's so unique that it feels strange to me that it be called jazz. Most of the music is polyrhythmic percussion, including woodwinds & strings. There's also some classical instrumentation & some fun piano music. One of the 2 instruments in the first song on the cd is a blowing boat. In one of my favorite parts of this cd, Moondog is arguing with a little dog & starting by saying, "That's mine, you can't have it." A few minutes later, though, I think the little dog gets to have it.
