Remastered from Original Tapes: "Vernal Equinox", released on Lovely Music in 1978, was the first commercial Jon Hassell release and, according to Pitchfork, is one of the 50 best ambient albums of all time. The trumpeter and musical visionary created together with Brazil percussion legend Naná Vasconcelos and David Rosenboom on the synthesizer a subtle blend of field recordings, electric jazz, ambient and world music influences. The result was calm, meditative and of extraordinary
beauty. The LP reissue has been released for the first time since VÖ (42 years ago), the CD for the first time in 30 years, both formats with sleeved notes by Jon Hassell and Brian Eno.
