Sax Pax for a Sax

Genre: Jazz; Producer (group): Atlantic

MOONDOG AND THE LONDON SAXOPHONIC Cited as an influence by artists as diverse as Janis Joplin, John Zorn, and Beck, 81-year-old street composer/percussionist Moondog (on drums) joins with four- to nine-member sax choirs to create his most piquant, hypnotic blend of jazz and classical music yet. So compelling are numbers like the lilting ”Paris,” you’ll overlook Moondog’s occasional clumsy and naive lyrics. B
