For those unfamiliar with him, Moondog was one of the most unique, and enigmatic musical figures of the twentieth century. He lived as a street musician in New York for 20 years, dressing only in his homemade clothes, an homage to Thor, and playing instruments he created.
His music can be described as a mix of classical and Jazz, with occasional spoken word poetry. You have to hear it to appreciate how amazing it is.
