    Trumpeter/composer Jon Hassell studied with Pran Nath along with Terry Riley and played on the original 1968 recording of In C. Made great minimalist / ambient music

    What a career this guy had! From Terry Riley to Jackson Browne and Ry Cooder.

    By coincidence I was listening to him yesterday.

    Sad news, but he was a great musician and an important figure in the music world.

    I hate to call it “minimalist” music, because it was highly complex, but it was definitely stripped down to the elements and without a hint of virtuosity for virtuosity’s sake.

    RIP, Jon.

    A name from the distant past for me, some forty years ago he was associated with players I listened to. I haven’t heard of him since, but am sorry to hear he has gone.
