[Audio] – Moondog – “Toot Suite, 3rd Movement” (1994)

Moondog – “Toot Suite, 3rd Movement” (1994)

Every incarnation of Moondog puts a smile on my face, from the early oddball percussion works to the vocal rounds with his daughter to the orchestral works, always with his signature playfulness and humor.  This later track from 1994 combines elements of all of them, with a jazzy swing and Stan Getz-esque sax playing in canon-like melodies that are unmistakably Moondog.  Joy in three minutes. [Moondog is featured here and here in mixes at Musicophilia in all his effervescent beauty.]

    magical stuff. how many saxophones are playing there? three? or four? the second sax sounds like an echo to the first but when the third enters the piece becomes a many-voiced canon. music which has fallen straight from the heavens. bonus points for that bonsai saxophone on the cover.
