O’s Notes: Jean-Luc is back with a rousing performance that will thrill his fans. The core unit is William Lecomte (p), Guy Nsangué Akwa (b), Thierry Arpino (d) and Taffa Cissé (perc). The album was recorded over a 13-month period between live performances. They provided an opportunity to incorporate things they learned in concert and experiences they had while touring around the world. Ponty wrote all of the music and it has his characteristic open, natural sound filled with electric violin melodies. Among the best were “On the Way To Bombay”, “To And Fro” and “Parisian Thoroughfare” with guest guitarist Philip Catherine.
