"I've wanted to get my hands on this session for years. Not only rumored to be some of Ponty's best work (before Zappa, synthesizers, and the mechanization of the artist) but one of the most spirited, innovative, unique B-3 sessions on record (Eddy Louiss). The recording exceeds expectations--in both musical and audio quality. How Louiss' ever got his ax into this small Paris cave defies comprehension, but the sound it produces is some of the most stirring Hammond on record--constant dynamic contrasts in the use of stops and voices, on and off Leslie effects throughout, and bass lines strong enough to make most bass players ponder. Makes me wish I could trade in the parlor piano for a B-3.As for Ponty, he finally shows why he was once called the "Bird of the fiddle.""
