Jon Hassell-Last Night The Moon Came Dropping Its Clothes In The Street (2009)

Jon Hassell is the only consistently original successor to Miles Davis' electric output and one of the most original instrumental stylists of the last 30 years. His regrettably low profile is ascribable to the unique nature of the 13 albums he has recorded. Though primarily associated with his own Fourth World tribal/technology concept, his oeuvre reveals a range of other possibilities including bayou jazz (Fascinoma), digital cut-up (City: Works of Fiction) and hiphop (Dressing For Pleasure). Everything, including this album, is worthy of serious attention.

" Trumpet player Jon Hassell is one of the true pioneers of modern music, having played with enigmatic microtonal drone godfather La Monte Young and on Terry Riley’s minimalist masterpiece of the late 1960s, In C, before becoming a student of Indian vocal guru Pandit Pran Nath and finally evolving his own distinctive breathy, sensual, gliding trumpet style as a result. He then went on to record perhaps the most incredible albums of the early 1980s – records that still sound like nothing else on the planet – a beguiling mix of tambora-esque drone backdrop, carefully-processed trumpet, peculiar shimmering moires, and organic ‘world music’ samples the size of atoms "
