We'll remember trumpeter and composer Jon Hassell, who died Saturday at the age of 84. Hassell was a pioneer in avant-garde music, developing "fourth world" music, which he described as "a unified primitive/futuristic sound combining features of world ethnic styles with advanced electronic techniques." A 1980 collaboration with Brian Eno, which led to an appearance on the Talking Heads album Remain In Light. He later collaborated with a wide variety of artists in the popular music world, adding his inimitable style to each of those recordings. We'll hear some of his solo work on this episode as well as appearances on recordings from Ry Cooder, k.d. lang, Jackson Browne, Tears For Fears, and Peter Gabriel.
