His father taught violin, his mother taught piano. At sixteen, he was admitted to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, graduating two years later with the institution's highest honor, Premier Prix (first prize). He was hired by the Concerts Lamoureux symphony in which he played for three years.

1) Open Mind: Jean-Luc with his colleague Chick Corea (what a pa. .) plays the opening track with some Latin-music chromatic, thanks to Chick. 2) Solitude: A really atmospheric proposal. JPL is plays his violectra and grand piano perfect (as usual). In general this album is good. Possibly, this is not the Jean-Luc Ponty that we knew from "Aurora" (75) or "Imaginary Voyage" (76). His new scheme is a little softer but it's growing in sophistication and elegance. I'd recommend this album just for jazzy ears. greenback SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
