Hassell, Jon - Last Night the Moon Came Dropping Its Clothes in the Street

SKU 28-ECM2077
"Trumpeter Jon Hassell was the originator and unrivalled master of the musical aesthetic he dubbed Fourth World — in his own words, "a unified primitive/futuristic sound combining features of world ethnic styles with advanced electronic techniques." Jon is probably best known for the 3 albums he made with the enouragement/help of Eno on Editions EG. He's done a lot of work since that time, including a previous great work on ECM over 20 years ago and it's nice to see him back on ECM and also nice to see him doing a '00s' variant of his classic sound - it's different of course; technology marches on, but this was a really fine work and a fine return from a serious talent!

"Almost all of the musicians I meet at the moment seem to regard Jon Hassell as one of the God-like geniuses of contemporary music. It s difficult to think what contemporary music would sound like without his influence."-The Wire
