Sidewalk Dances: 14 Moondog pieces has now been available in the shops for a few months. Sidewalk Dances was performed by Britten Sinfonia, pianist Joanna MacGregor and saxophonist Andy Sheppard in last year's (2006) London Jazz Festival. Read press reviews. The Britten Sinfonia website [see its left-hand column] has put up an online video, 'Bach meets Moondog' - a wonderful pairing of music from the Baroque master and the underground American street musician who has become legendary in new music circles. Somewhat reminds me of the curious Handel and Hendrix festival pairing a few years ago, based on the London House that both occupied in Brook Street, now the Handel House Museum.
