Agree – haha – this is one of my favourite pieces of music – thanks for stopping by Pearl, hope all is well at your end of the earth.

Now this is what I needed to start my day off right!

I love that music, I heard it before, never knew the name!

That is exactly what I said to Squires on his blog when he first played it years ago – it is a pretty famous piece of music with many different versions apparently.

Shakespeare springs to mind when I hear this. I’ve just looked up Moondog – what a fascinating life he had, Gabe. I’d never heard of him, so thanks.

Just an amazing character and so talented bluebee 🙂 – another reason not to judge people who live on the street 😉

Wow, that is so fabulous, so jazzy. Real Squires music. I’ve never heard of this before. Referenced in his poetry?

I can’t quite remember how he showed it to us – I think it was a prose piece with the link to Moondog embedded (you could do a search on gingatao and it might come up) – it is one of my favourite tunes Aletha 🙂

Amazingly enough, I’ve never heard this before. But I’m so glad it’s in my ears today; in fact, it’s probably going to be in my years for quite a few days!

It’s a brilliant piece and the man is fascinating Nigel 🙂

Yes yes and YEEEESSSSS. Love. Sophisticated, cool and a happenin’ thang!

I stole it off Squires 😉 It’s one of my favourite toons – haha – and more cosplay with the viking outfits required (the preferred attire of Moondog himself).
