Trumpeter/composer Jon Hassell has worked with innovators Brian Eno and La Monte Young, and he's immersed himself in the traditional musics of Africa and Asia; the result is a practically new genre. Call it electro-acoustic world music or fourth world, but Hassell's approach is both unique and influential. On first listen, LAST NIGHT THE MOON. is nothing startlingly different from his other discs, yet it's a beautiful refinement and expansion of his approach. All the usual suspects are present--Hassell's trumpet married to electronics (giving it an almost vocal tone); precise, echoing percussion; a hazy, sultry ambiance; and assorted instruments easing in and out of aural focus. But MOON consists of 10 relatively concise tracks, though many are quite lengthy (i.e., the title track, which clocks in at over 11 minutes). Also, the influence of the electric music of Miles Davis is slightly more pronounced (more in the way of tribute, not imitation)--at times, sections of MOON could be the more sensuous outtakes from Davis's BITCHES BREW.
