When are you coming back to the states?
Chelsea MA United StatesI am truly hoping that at some point in time that you will come back to Boston and Play. For over thirty (yes thirty )years I have been buying CD's and giving them to friends who are now asking WHEN you will be coming back here? Looking on a website a few years ago and saw you were going to be playing in Boston, only to find out the show had been cancelled. I was so bummed out. Have some mercy on your fans from Boston and please come back and play here.May 18, 2013 7:33pm
Please find it in your heart to play New York once again***

Your Barcus -Berry violin
Santiago ChileHi Jean Luc! I'm a big fan yours. Your last concert in Chile was amazing. I don't know if this is the right forum but i have a technical question for you. I see your main Barcus-Berry violin doesn't have the old original pickup because it is located inside the bridge. Would you tell me What pickup is it? I think your present sound is my ideal of an electro-acoustic violin, I love it! Regards from Chile, sorry for my english.May 16, 2013 4:11am
Hoping to see you again here in US soon
atlanta Georgia USI attended a concert of Jean Luc in the late 70's or early 80's at the Oxnard Civic Center in Oxnard Ca, US. It was a very modest venue. However in the past 30+ years of concert going I have never experienced anything so moving. Since that time I have never been in the right place to attend another concert but it is a life goal. May I please be included in a mailing list of some kind to keep me updated as to the future concert dates. Thank you, Kate ShawMay 14, 2013 8:13am
Live at Chene Park
Rochester NYHi Jean Luc, I listen to your music daily but seem to be hooked on the "Live at Chene Park" album lately and was wondering about something. In "A Journey's End" are you playing keyboards along with Chris Rhyne during his incredible solo part? It seems like there is way too much piano happening for one set of hands. Also, have you considered bringing your own keyboards and effects pedals back for any of your upcoming concerts (particularly concerts with Jamie, Rayford, and Baron)? Thanks! BobMay 5, 2013 1:37pm

JLP at his best
RAJKUMAR RAJAMANI (RAJU)
Chennai Tamil Nadu IndiaGreat to see JLP & John McLaughlin jam at the international jazz fest in Istanbul recently. An emotional moment for me to see these two maestros perform after 38 years. Looking forward to seeing JLP Live in Concert sometime soon, been over 5 years now.....Just have one question for Jean - Luc : Lotus Feet is a piece composed by John for Mahavishnu Orchestra in 1975.... were you aware of this piece already or did you know of this piece only now ?May 3, 2013 7:29am

Come back to Detroit!
RobertJean Luc, Attended your concert at the Music Hall in Detroit 2009. You even played one of my favorite songs 'Elephants in Love', would love to hear you play 'Infinite Pursuit' LIVE on stage, here in Detroit. When will you return? Soon I hope!Apr 21, 2013 6:11pm
in answer to a few questions
My focus was on the situation in Boston where I have several friends, bassist Baron Browne and his wife, Benoit Rolland the bow maker and his wife and also the Berklee School of Music where I gave some master classes. So tragic, but glad the terrorists were caught!
To comment on a few messages posted lately: the compilation release in that review mentioned by BMB is not the 4-CD box set that was produced by Warner/France in 2011 entitled "Electric Fusion - The Atlantic Years" - which my management is trying to release in the U.S., and which contains a booklet with vintage photos and liner notes by a writer and some also by me, except that texts are in French only and have to be translated in English. So, my management is trying to find out what exactly is this new compilation released by Rhino, it says 'imported', we don't know from where. Neither me nor my management have been contacted by any record label in regard to this other compilation.
As for what I am doing when not touring......practicing violin at home, between 1 and 2 hours a day to keep my chops and also to come up with new playing ideas; and I have spent months working on the symphonic arrangements of my music for these recent and future performances with big orchestras. It's a huge amount of work, so the only regular hobby I have is to practice yoga, almost everyday to keep in shape, long walks in nature, connecting with my grand children, reading and traveling to interesting places in the world where I am not invited to play.Apr 21, 2013 12:45am
