Snaketime: The Music of Moondog
Snaketime: The Music of Moondog
Snaketime is a new project that explores the music of composer, musician, and poet Louis "Moondog" Hardin. Led by saxophonist Dustin Laurenzi, the octet consists of some of Chicago's leading improvisers. The group embraces the minimalist repetition and unrelenting pulse of Moondog's compositions, while allowing space for free-wheeling collective improvisations. The band recorded a live album at a sold-out show at the Hungry Brain in Chicago in January 2018. Snaketime: The Music of Moondog will be released on Astral Spirits/Feeding Tube Records March 29, 2019.
