Album Review

Logan Ressler []

Serving up prime cuts from his last 4 albums, Jean-Luc Ponty's Live album is a great retrospective of his classic era filled with advanced fusion instrumentals. Standout non-album track No Strings Attached is a violin showcase with plenty of effects and classic Ponty-isms to bring the crowd to roaring applause. Ponty's playing is remarkable and melodic throughout, and his backing band are nuanced and responsive. Like any Ponty LP great playing abounds, but the true star of this release are the compositions themselves, which sound even more organic and natural live then they did on previous studio releases.

A must-have for any fan of his early electric solo work, also highly recommended for the newly-initiated Ponty fan or any fan of 70's fusion.
