"Dog Trot" by Moondog

Louis Hardin, AKA Moondog, made some craaaaazy records back when he was the Viking of 6th Avenue—a curiosity, an Outsider patching together his art from whatever scraps he could find, recording dogs barking and trains rattling under the streets.  He invented his own instruments from bits and pieces and played beautifully.  Years later he’d earned himself an audience and could afford to hire professional orchestras for his recording sessions, but he never lost the creativity that had helped him get by for all those years.  Many artists turn boring when they get old and respectable, but Moondog just got betterThat’s the virtue of doing things the hard way: If you learn to do more with less, imagine how much you can do with more.
