[Kronomyth 26.0] L’Afrique, c’est chic.
Elton’s platinum-selling #1 hit, recorded in the (in)famous Chateau d’Herouville.
On a scale of 1 to 10, this Ocean’s an eleven.
More smooth sailing in the sea of fusion with a re-tooled band that now included a couple of Duke/Zappa associates.
While the world probably could have used another jazz-fusion guitarist, what it really needed was a jazz-fusion violinist, a point that Ponty embodied.
[Kronomyth 14.5] Donte’s Pontytourio.
The low-budget seduction of a classical/jazz violinist and an ad hoc orchestra.
Ponty was flown into the US to record this album with George Duke and Gerald Wilson, but the performances feel dialed in.
The novelty of a jazz quartet led by a violinist notwithstanding, this is standard bop played by a competent group of Europeans.
Jean-Luc and Duke play an electrified set at the psychedelicized Sunset Strip spot, Thee Experience.
An alignment of fusion stars, unplugged, that sort of picks up where Di Meola, De Lucia and McLaughlin left off.
[Kronomyth 9.0] An Imaginary Garden with Real Toads of the Short Forest in It.
[Kronomyth 23.0] Once a Ponty time…
More violin music for happy robots. Like his last release, Individual Choice, this is a true solo album with Ponty playing violin, synthesizers…
[Kronomyth 25.0] Twice-told tales.
