From Burning Ambulance:

Alto saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc first came to prominence on the New York loft jazz scene of the mid-1970s, as leader of the band Muntu. But he started out in Chicago, then moved to Boston, and then to Antioch College in Ohio in the early part of the decade, where he spent two years working with Cecil Taylor. (Moondoc was never a student, but he was nonetheless part of Taylor’s ensembles there.) In 1973, he moved to New York.
