Product Description

The fingers (not to mention the hands they're attached to) are flying as the music of violinist and fusion pioneer Jean-Luc Ponty gets a first-class treatment on Jean-Luc Ponty in Concert, a 70-minute performance recorded in Warsaw in 1999. There's absolutely no doubt that the French musician can play (it's not for nothing that he once toured and recorded with both Frank Zappa and John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra, among many others), and his bandmates, especially electric bassist Guy Nsangue Akwa, are excellent as well. But while the music is undeniably impressive (and beautifully recorded), with its demanding rhythms and time signatures and angular, contrapuntal melodies, there just isn't much there there, so to speak; it lacks the compositional brilliance of both Pat Metheny and Weather Report, two giants of the genre whose music Ponty occasionally evokes. Ponty and band do get their groove on, and their quieter moments ("Pastoral Harmony"--lame title, nice tune) easily eclipse pretty much anything in the smooth jazz category. Add to that some fine bonus features (including "Touring Memories," an interesting collection of video from the group's travels in Europe and Asia, as well as a very detailed biography and discography section), and you've got a nice package that nevertheless falls well short of indispensable. --Sam Graham
