Canadian singer-songwriter cellist, Jorane comes to Echoes to reveal her intimate songs in our intimate living room, live. There aren't too many singer-songwriters whose main instrument is the cello. Jorane is a Canadian musician with several albums released north of the border, but she recently released her first U.S. recording, THE YOU AND THE NOW (Six Degrees), a haunting disc of luminous cello driven songs and Jorane's darkly insinuating, hymn-like vocals. We hear her playing live, on Echoes.

JON HASSELL: Improvisations in Intuition
Jon Hassell is a seminal figure in contemporary music. A student of Karlheinz Stockhausen and a musician in LaMonte Young's Theatre of Eternal Music, he has roots in mid-20th century experimentalism and minimalism. On his own, he's crafted a fourth world music that has embraced rhythms from Africa to Bali, all sliced through with modern technology, dub grooves, ambient atmospheres and his own vapor trail trumpet lines. He's been an influence on Brian Eno, Steve Roach, Robert Rich and hundreds of other musicians. In an LA studio where he's mixing his latest album, Jon Hassell talks about his hallucinatory swirl of seductive rhythms and soul-searing trumpet called Maarifa Street (Nyen).
