Overview

Jean-Luc Ponty, who at the time was still with the second version of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, is heard playing his own brand of fusion on this excellent recording. Upon the Wings of Music set the standard for his music of the next decade. With keyboardist Patrice Rushen, Dan Sawyer or Ray Parker on guitars, bassist Ralphe Armstrong and drummer Ndugu, the violinist performs eight of his highly arranged but spirited originals. His early Atlantic recordings (of which this is the first) remain underrated for their important contributions to the history of fusion.

Violinist Ponty hits the fan on this explosive set of fast fusion and upbeat tracks. This CD is one of his most memorable efforts. It surprised me that he has quite a few songs on this album that you can dance to . The grooves are really hard.
