kenny graham & his satellites - Moondog & Suncat Suites

Back in 1956 the early New York street recordings of the legendary Moondog aka Louis Thomas Hardin had reached Britain. They were picked up and digested by the likes of London jazzman Kenny Graham who heard a commonality in Moondog's primitive percussive compositions. He assembled a troupe of like-minded players and set about recording an homage to Moondog, resulting in the exceptionally rare album of covers 'Moondog Suite' and Graham's own complimentary compositions 'Suncat Suite'. Accompanied by a young Joe Meek on engineering duties and a cast including Ivor Slaney, Phil Seamen, Stan Tracey and Danny Moss, the ensemble made a strange, exotic and ultimately charming set of music in thrall to this magnificent mystic from the West. So the first 10 tracks directly interpret Moondog compositions like 'One Four', the brilliant 'Fog On The Hudson', the spooky 'Lullaby' and 'Chant' among others. Meanwhile Graham's own 'Suncat Suite' takes a more liberal approach, heavily inspired by Moondog, i.e still economically melodic and percussive, but with a jauntier jazz or exotic lounge feel. Moondog fiends will find much of interest, as will any followers of the Trunk or Finders Keepers sets.
