    Does Jean Luc plan on recording a new album for Koch records in the near future?

  • Youtube video with Cosma

    This "Jean Luc Ponty Quartet" announcement is an error made by the Polish concert organization which produced this concert of Vladimir Cosma's music with orchestra for the Film Music Festival in Poland a few years ago. The rhythm section was in fact French jazz musicians who work on occasion with Cosma and hired by him.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1usVEdaB0U This is a neat video/composition, and Jean-Luc's solo really swings. What I don't understand is why the caption includes the phrase "Jean Luc Ponty Quartet". Neither the bass player nor the drummer look familiar to me as recent members of JLP's band, and I don't see a keyboard player. Still, a delightful performance.

    Thanks John, I too have the old book (although I usually do these transcriptions myself) The bowing is hard to hear...I had to intuit... but Jean Luc was kind enough to give me a personal explanation this AM. Now how cool is that? Just another reason to love this guy.

    Chris, I am not sure if you mean transcribing the head or just playing it. I have fooled around with playing it, but not transcribing it because I have the sheet music from one of JLP's late 1970s full-score (including all instrument parts) sheet music books. It is tricky, from what I remember (though I haven't looked at it in a while). I commiserate.

    Most of the posters here are listeners rather than players, but I just have to see if anybody else has vied with the head for this tune - I am a long term pro player, have done JLP (and Grappelli, etc) competently for a long time, but this head is knocking me out. Just had to vent - or see if I have any brothers in arms out there. JLP has been a principal inspiration for me - have been fortunate enough to chat with him and also to have him respond to me personally... what a thrill for an acolyte like me!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnOrsxmjUdI Seems like a while back, there was another posting of a JLP fan doing a similar guitar solo-perhaps "Trans Love Express". Great to see how the music still rocks...and wouldn't it be great to hear it again, live...hmmm, maybe for a 70th birthday celebration (big JLP alumni reunion), if not sooner....

  • hello everyone

    This website was not accessible since yesterday March 1, until this Tuesday evening, March 2, because of maintenance and upgrades. Sorry for the inconvenience. Also JLP received a message in Russian and since nobody speaks nor reads Russian in JLP's entourage, we had to wait until we found someone who could translate it for us. It is apparently very positive about JLP's music and therefore passed the screening test. Ce site a été inaccessible depuis hier lundi 1er mars jusqu'à ce soir mardi 2 mars, en raison de maintenance et de mise à jour. Désolé pour cette inconvénience. D'autre part JLP a reçu un message en russe et personne ne parlant ni ne lisant le russe dans notre entourage, nous avons dû attendre de trouver quelqu'un qui nous le traduise. C'est apparemment un message très positif sur la musique de JLP qui a donc passé le test.
