Fans of the Norwegian free improvisation troup Supersilent will immediately draw comparisons between Hassell's airy, floating trumpet tone and that of Arve Henriksen. Besides having both recorded for ECM, and sharing a delicateness of tone and penchant for thoughtful improvisation, the two are linked further by mutual involvement with Jan Bang, who controls the electronic samples on this album. However, the atmosphere of Last Night The Moon Came... is distinct from anything Arve Henriksen has had a hand in. The opening track "Aurora", a wash of electronic textures over a minimal bass ostinato, with almost no melody, sounds closer to releases on 12k Records or Hearts in Space than any I've heard on ECM or Rune Grammofon. It's a beautiful commencement to the album, and one that gives the listener no sense at all of how many musicians are involved. Besides Hassell and Bang, we have Rick Cox and Eivind Aarset on guitars, Peter Freeman on bass and a laptop, Jamie Muhoberac on keyboards and a laptop, Kheir Eddine M Kachiche on violin, and drummers Helge Andreas Norbakken and Pete Lockett.
Despite the size of the lineup and richness of instrumentation, the music throughout this album is almost always highly subdued and sparse in texture.Read more ›

This album cannot be described. It can only be experienced. This music has the power to open your mind.Published on October 12, 2010 by Milo

There's a mastery of new jazz and of ambient ethos at work in this release. Easily one of the best records--jazz, pop, or otherwise, of 2009. Read morePublished on August 22, 2009 by Geoffrey B. Little
I'm not sure whether Jon has gone feeble or what but his talents are ill served on this recording. Instead buy his recording with Eno or his Vernal Equinox, or Power Spot or .. Read morePublished on June 26, 2009 by David L. Winchester
