Please correct the spelling: It should be Hasaan Ibn Ali, not Bin Ali.

The New Yorker piece, written by Richard Brody, seems to me an absolute dream of a review, one that very few musicians will see in a lifetime. Hasaan, if he's observing the re-awakening of his name, 41 years after his death in 1980, can feel that, at last, his achievement has been fully appreciated. Brody's review will serve as a beacon to those who are trying to understand Hasaan Ibn Ali's colossal talent.

How ironic that a person whose moniker is TraneMonk can say that they'd never heard of Hasaan before. It's not your fault, dear TraneMonk. Now you have some splendid hours of listening ahead of you.
