Tonight in the Explorers Room–In The World, But Not Of It: An Evening with the Compositions of Moondog
Tonight's episode of Explorers Room will be an all-Moondog affair, with a special emphasis on the composer's multi-part suites, later-period symphonic/saxophonic recordings, and–of course, of course–his exotic themes and motifs. Moondog is no secret to serious music listeners these days, but that doesn't mean we can't spend an enlightening evening eraptured by his elegant repetitions, now does it? Bring fresh ears; all other senses strictly optional.
Tonight, 7-10, followed by The Cool Blue Flame with Little Danny.
