Jon Hassell RIP

Postby Halloway on Sun Jun 27, 2021 4:18 am

Jon Hassell, the influential American avant garde composer who invented the global-minded “fourth world” musical aesthetic, has died aged 84. In a statement, his family said the “iconic trumpet player, author and composer” died in the early hours of 26 June, after just over a year of health complications.

In spring 2020, Hassell broke his leg in a fall at his recording studio and spent four months recuperating in hospital, in isolation owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

Such a sad news. Hassell was a very influencial player who's sound often inspired others. Although he must have played on hundreds of album, including a lot of solo-work, I'd like to mention the ones in my collection: Jan Bang, Genre Peak, David Sylvian (of course), Peter Gabriel, Alice, Mandalay and Talking Heads. The solo-album I own is Last Night The Moon Cam Dropping ITs Clothes In The Street, released on ECM in 2009.
