Format: Audio CD
Jean-Luc Ponty has been my favourite musician for many years, and I always look forward to his new releases with great anticipation. He brings a certain uniqueness to jazz violin as well as a level of performance no other player can quite achieve, and the warmth and texture of his compositions are forever joyful, uplifting and reassuring.

His first new studio album since the start of the decade, while offering little in the way of new ground or anything to rival his wondrous 76-83 period, nevertheless demonstrates how tightly this particular incarnation of the band has grown through years of live performing. The overriding African feel of the ensemble persists, as it has now done through numerous albums and line-ups, tying the music strongly to its authentic jazz roots and facilitating a rhythmic freedom while avoiding a mere groove-powered sound.

The themes are as protean as ever, with titles too good to not have been thought of before the actual pieces were put together (though I always thought it was the Atacama Desert, not Acatama?). As usual with Ponty, the names of the tracks are almost as appealing as the tunes themselves: have a look at the list and you'll see what I mean.

Two guest guitarists feature to add that extra little dimension: first up is the great Philip Catherine, an old sparring partner from JLP's formative years who makes a welcome return on three of the pieces and gives a good account of himself. Then there's the even greater Allan Holdsworth albeit only one one track, which is a great pity as there's no experience on earth quite like a Ponty-Holdsworth collaboration in full flow.

All in all, a familiar but nonetheless welcome experience, and either a worthy addition to an existing JLP collection or else good enough place to start.

What a great album by Jean Luc Ponty. This is typical Ponty music at it's best, perhaps lost some of its aggresiveness, but very melodic. The great Alan Holdsworth features on track 4 - Point of no return and it's a shame he doesn't feature on any more tracks. Still there are 3 other tracks featuring Philip Catherine as compensation but not a patch on Holdsworth. Hope to catch the group at the Jazz Cafe in September, his only UK appearance!

This really is a wonderful set of musicians at work - not least Jean-Luc himself. What sets this album apart is the strength of the songs, this is not just a bunch of noodling, but there is proper structure, and most importantly, melody. Jazz-fusion for the modern age, with very fine recording quality to boot.

A sonic journey with the usual Ponty magic and for guitar fans some great
playing by Phil Catherine and the amazing Allan Holdsworth.

Well worth having. Good all in all but excellent to have track 4 with Alan Holdsworth too. A pity that there were not more as the other reviewers also state, including Holdsworth.
