Jon Hassell (born March 22, 1937) is an American trumpet player and composer active since the 1960s. He is best known for developing the musical concept known as "Fourth World," which unifies ideas from minimalism, various world music sources, and his electronic manipulation of the trumpet.
On Hollow Bamboo, celebrated bansuri player Ronu Majumdar tunes into a few of the different bandwidths offered within the world music spectrum. With half of the tracks he grounds his playing in traditional Hindustani works. The other four tracks are experimental collaborations with trumpeter Jon Hassell, guitarists Rick Cox and Ry Cooder, and percussionist Joachim Cooder.

Fans of Four Tet and Jon Hopkins are advised to check out this master at work. Q Magazine The most striking thing about Jon Hassell’s first new album in nine years, is how effortlessly contemporary it sounds. That unhurried, muted trumpet is still pre-eminent, reasserting Hassell as electric Miles Davis’s most imaginative heir. Much here could be mistaken for new work by a producer like Flying Lotus or Oneohtrix Point Never, no mean feat for an 81 year old. - MOJO.
