Moondog Lament (Introduction to) Mix

Moondog (1916-1999) was a poet, a Viking, an inventor of instruments (like the ‘Oo’), a master percussionist and composer, a weird jazzman, a blind man, a hobo. He doesn’t fit in any category really, because his music is just too far out there in his own world. Step into it, have a taste, get hooked if you want to, or just try it.

Moondog Tunes:
Bird’s Lament (slow)
Fog on the Hudson
Stamping ground
Single foot
Viking 1
All is loneliness
Symphonique 6 (Good for Goodie)
Lament 1 (Bird’s Lament)
Dog Trot
Coffee Beans
Moondog’s Symphony 1 (Timberwolf)
Oboe round
Dark Eyes
Instrumental round
Symphonique 3 (Ode to Venus)
