The Cosmic Messenger returns! For the first time since the mid-nineties, jazz/fusion violinist, Jean Luc Ponty will tour with members of the amazing electric band he toured and recorded with during the 80s and 90s. once more replicating the ‘ahead of its time’ electronic sound he pioneered in the 70s and 80s, the Jean Luc Ponty electric band is hitting the road.
Featuring Ponty band vets, Jamie Glaser (guitar), Keith Jones (bass), Rayford Griffin (drums), and Wally Minko (keyboards), the band will present the influential jazz fusion music that poured forth from classic works such as “Imaginary Voyage”, “Cosmic Messenger”, “Enigmatic Ocean” and many more of the most influential jazz fusion pieces that came from his string of successful Atlantic Records albums.
Beginning well before his association with Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention and his participation in John McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jena Luc Ponty began a “cosmic voyage” that brought him recognition as one of the most progressive, innovative influences of jazz fusion music in history.
