Jean-Luc Ponty - Electric Connection (1969)


Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Jean-Luc Ponty - Cosmic Messenger (1977)

Let's get the year started right, shall we? Electric Connection has hints of the space-brained fusion of later Ponty releases, but overall sticks much closer to straight-ahead hard bop. Led by a violinist, of course. Energetic and remarkably fresh-sounding.

Track listing:
1. Summit Soul
2. Hypomode Del Sol
3. Scarborough Fair / Canticle
4. The Name of the Game
5. The Loner
6. Waltz for Clara
7. Forget
8. Eighty-One

We stand in sapphire silence

  1. Great stuff, I've only heard Ponty's later solo albums. Should be good. Happy new year!
