Jean-Luc Ponty – Aurora (1976)

I meandered into the works of Jean-Luc Ponty during my recent trips into the world of jazz. Jean-Luc’s Aurora however appears to be something completely different. This violin-led electric orchestra of madness is something that sounds so 80s that it hurts. Considering that it was recorded in the mid-70s, I can only attest that it was – actually – years ahead of its time.

I don’t know enough about this kind of music right now other to than to offer a fleeting opinion. In parts in boggles the mind, and in others it just sounds like something off an infomercial. One to return to, no doubt.
