Jazz: Currently Spinning

Recommended Posts

Best known as the drummer in the NOLA group Galactic, this is a straight ahead jazz album with a nice groove from start to finish. A very pleasant surprise.15762058713491335574384.thumb.jpg.f81e0782c4c65b95527d601d4931eb4c.jpg

Jean-Luc Ponty - Jazz Currently Playing




Violinist Jean-Luc Ponty's debut album, recorded in Paris, June-July 1963 and released in 1964. Jean-Luc is accompanied by a group of French musicians playing flute, piano, acoustic bass and drums.


This is a 2010 CD release. I picked it up some time ago, had a proper listen to it last night. Its a pretty impressive debut, well played by all involved and well recorded too. Has a nice warm organic sound to it. Sounds like it was recorded live in the studio, although the liner notes don't make that clear. 


A couple of tracks from the album.
