  OTHER MUSICIANS AND ARTISTS ON JON HASSELL
 


MILTON NASCIMENTO
"He sounds like a combination of Miles Davis and Milton Nascimento."


BONO
"A brilliant musician." (CNN Interview)


RY COODER
"One of the three or four players of wind instruments in the world who can command your attention with one note."


BAABA MAAL
"I never heard anyone play the trumpet like that."


PHILIP GLASS
"If you're looking for interesting new music, I recommend all the
works of Jon Hassell."


BRIAN ENO
"I've really gotten into your Fascinoma. There's real clarity and honesty about it...The music is fantastic, and its undefendedness inspires instant confidence. This is very much the mood of the times."


ISSEY MIYAKE
"This music is amazing...I feel strong connection to your Fourth World idea."


WIM WENDERS
"What a beautiful atmosphere he makes!"


PETE TOWNSEND
"Love Dream Theory in Malaya...brilliant."


CHRIS MARKER
"The mail arrived, and in it was Maarifa Street. And all of a sudden the harassment turned into a zenlike experiment, I was floating on a musical flying carpet, and every silly thing I performed became a contribution to the harmony of the Universe. I'll never be grateful enough to Jon for his music."


CHARLIE WATTS
"Love your records...followed your work since the eighties."


PAT METHENY
"A visionary."


JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT
"Power Spot is amazing!"


BJÖRK
"I've always thought about your music as 'secretly happy'."


PETER GABRIEL on The Last Temptation of Christ
"It was exciting to sit in the studio and build up pictures...For the
section called 'Passion', I used a rhythm I recorded in Brazil, some
Qawwali singing, a little of Youssou N'Dour's vocals, Jon Hassell's
trumpet and an English choirboy."


TERRY RILEY
"Maarifa Street is Magnifico!!! Your playing just gets better all the time...harmonic remembrances of Gil Evans and echos of spaciousness Miles trumpeting through the benediction of Sri Pran Nath-ji...only you could do this. Also what a fine tribute to Mati...May many more cosmic morphisms be born of the Universal Sound Current through the womb of your horn."


ANI DI FRANCO
"Up before the light...The birds and Fascinoma in stereo...I come back
to it again and again. Thank you."


ROBERT FARRIS THOMPSON
"Beautiful! Superb, excellent documents of the spirit. Thanks ever so
much..."


DAVID TOOP
"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."


VAN DYKE PARKS
"What a gift...I will treasure it. (Fascinoma is) a spectacular symbiosis of the extemporary, of what's known and what can be discovered in such a setting. With such talent, and a power to communicate"


JACK NITZSCHE
"The most innovative, important composer alive."
