CD Reviews

JLP's Masterpiece
Kirk Lott | adrift on the seas of life | 02/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is truly Jean-Luc's masterpiece, for many reasons. First, it's the album where he truly stretched out by exploring many different instruments and textures, not just his violin. Second, every track has a completely different mood, and is in a world of its own, from the happy and upbeat "Far from the Beaten Paths" to the moody, brooding "Nostalgia" and everything in between. The end result is that the album as a whole takes you on an amazing journey. And finally, while JLP's music is instrumental, this album truly speaks. Every song tells a story, a story of strong emotion. And how each listener interprets these stories is left to his or her "individual choice." Wonderful."
Computer Incantations For World Peace
Kirk Lott | 10/12/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought the LP version in 1983 and I still play it in my turntable. Here in Lima, in the TV morning news, you can listen "Computer" as the dollar exchange values appear. Jean Luc makes an excellent violin solo in this song; definitely, the best track in the CD."

David V. Watts (dwatts@wt.net) | Houston, TX | 10/24/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this CD late in my Ponty collection. I was amazed to find it's a companion to Open Mind which I had always thought was a strange little gem in Ponty's work.Not that it's a departure or anything. But the use of keyboards is prevalent. A nice record. As the other reviewer said, Ponty really doesn't vary his work too much. So it's a case of - if you like one you'll like them all (with a few exceptions.)"
