  2. Moondoc pulls out all the stops on this album; it's the most complete documentation of his instrumental prowess on record. From the sustained melodic invention of the title track, to the sound-color-texture manipulations of "Huey Sees a Rainbow" to the gut-wrenching interpretation of "Another Angel Goes Home," Parker's tribute to the late Denis Charles, Moondoc is at the top of his game.
