Jon Hassell Fund

Hi all

Sad to report that Jon Hassell - whose trumpet work so defined that magical second half of Brilliant Trees - and who is now 83 years old, is suffering from long-term health issues and financial difficulties.

Wire magazine posted this link to a GoFundMe page that is raising funds to help with his long-term care, with a tribute from Brian Eno.

This is sad news. At first I was not really not sure if it was genuine, as there was so little verifiable information given, and many unexplained aspects to this fundraising page.

But they have now provided additional details and I note that the same page is also linked from various other sites including Hassell's home page.

As a fan since 1987, I hope my small contribution will help.
