Caracas Night September 11, 1975 Jon Hassells 1980 album Fourth World, Vol. 1: Possible Musics, produced alongside Brian Eno, is perhaps the most common entry point in the trumpeters catalog, arriving during the latters ascendance as a pop theorist and alchemist. A tactile shell of warbling, wavering sounds suspended in a tropical soup of sparse, humble materials vibrating and echoing like dried beans inside the wooden husk a sonically rich cylinder covered in a goatskin membrane.

Recorded in 1976 at the York University Electronic Media Studios in Toronto, Ontario, Vernal Equinox is Jon Hassell's first recording as a solo artist and sets the stage for his then-emerging career as a trumpeter, composer and musical visionary. Toucan Ocean opens the album with two gently swaying chords and delicate layers of percussion that provide a cushion upon which Hassell unfurls long, winding melodic shapes. His trumpet is sent through echo and an envelope filter, producing a stereo auto-wah-wah effect. Album 1976 6 Songs.
