Great work from Moody's "second phase" – the post-Overbrook time in which he picks up the flute, drops a bit of the bop style, and starts working in a much more complicated style that showed that he had a hell of a lot of room to grow as an artist! This album's Moody's second for ... read more CD

A stunning set of early work from the legendary Moondog – recorded on the streets of New York, but with a complexity and sophistication that may well beat his famous early albums on Prestige!

Incredible work from the enigmatic Moondog – his third, and to that point, possibly most angular record for Prestige to date!
