Moondog: H’art Songs {USA} [1979] @256 (Unique Composer and Singer-Author, This Album is a Must-Have)

Extraordinary composer Louis Hardin was born in Marysville, Kansas in 1916. Blinded in an accident when he 16, he dedicated his life to music, poetry and fantasy.
In the mid 50’s he appeared in New York City, selling poetry in the streets and dressed as a Viking or a druid magician.

All his life is surrounded by the aura of a happy musical enigma.

He admired and was admired by giants of Jazz like Charlie Parker, and later by Phillips Glass and many other composers immersed in minimalism.

For more about him and for those interested in getting the magnificent Moondog album from 1969 go here.

H’art Songs shows Moondog as a singer-author of sorts. He was not only an orchestra composer but also a man of lyrics and beautifully simple songs.

H’art Songs is a compilation of the dazzling dreams of an old, blind wizard.

I bet Homer would have loved Moondog’s music.

This album is highly recommended.

Keep Listening…!!!
