Jean-Luc Ponty: The Atlantic Years at

This event has already happened

Legendary French jazz-rock violinist Jean Luc Ponty and his band revisit the Atlantic Records years from the late '70s - '80s. Ponty contributed to Elton John's Honky Chateau hit album, and worked with Frank Zappa and his band the Mothers of Invention. He continued to work on a variety of projects - including a pair of John McLaughlin/Mahavishnu Orchestra albums/tours. In the meantime he became a prolific composer, signed on as a solo artist with Atlantic Records in early 1975, released his first album Upon The Wings Of Music.

For the next decade, Jean-Luc toured the world repeatedly and recorded 12 consecutive albums which all reached the Top 5 on the Billboard jazz charts and sold millions of copies. Early Atlantic recordings, such as 1976's Aurora and Imaginary Voyage, firmly established him as a figurehead in America's growing jazz-rock movement.
