There’s so much unrest right now. Feelings are heavy. I came cross this unreleased recording of the original Unrest we laid down at the Yesterday You Said Tomorrow session for Christian Scott in 2010. It struck a major chord with me listening to it years later knowing the social political issues we were evoking during that recording and now seeing these same issues happening at even more rapid occurrences. We want now what we wanted then. Hearing Rudy Van Gelder slate this take only reminds me of him telling Christian and I that “you guys are talking about exactly what they were talking about in the 60’s…”. The question is why must we still be forced to talk about it? #UNREST #YesterdayYouSaidTomorrow #Ferguson 

Moondog - Louis Thomas Hardin (May 26, 1916 September 8, 1999), a blind American composer, musician, poet, and inventor of several musical instruments. Moondog removed himself from society through his decision to make his home on the streets of New York for approximately twenty of the thirty years he spent in the city. He could be found on the streets of New York wearing clothes he had created based on his own interpretation of the Norse god Thor. Because of his unconventional outfits, he was known for much of his life as “The Viking of 6th Avenue”.
