Violinist Jean-Luc Ponty made his American debut at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1967, playing to thunderous appreciation and making his mark as one of the leading innovators of the early jazz-rock fusion era. Noted for his work with Frank Zappa, John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra and others, he has maintained a successful career as a solo artist for many decades and continues to be an active performer, recently working with Stanley Clarke, Bela Fleck, Chick Corea’s Return to Forever and others. This ensemble draws on Jean-Luc Ponty’s compositions from throughout his career and reflects his innovative approach to jazz.
