Chris Vitas & friends perform a tribute to the great Jazz Fusion violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, said to be “The first jazz violinist to be as exciting as a saxophonist.” Ponty has performed widely since the early sixties with such notable artists as Frank Zappa, Stephane Grappelli, Al Di Meola, and many more. Along with Chris Vitas on electric violin, there’s Fred Benedetti on guitar, Sky Ladd on keyboards, Jeff Pekarek on bass, and Duncan Moore on drums—presenting some of Ponty’s most notable tunes.
