Chile videos on youtube-Surprise!
Huntersville NC USAI was enjoying the videos on youtube of the recent performances in Chile. Just when I thought I'd heard the most moving version of "Mirage" I'd ever heard, comes the big surprise... Cosmic Messenger! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3ZO7E8HmV4 I'm speechless! I don't know if/when (a) the video footage will be posted here that Michael once alluded to, or (b) if/when another commercial DVD will be released-but this tour must be even more special than most. So-I'm really pumped about the 2009 tour possibilities, especially if a U.S. tour comes together. And maybe, just maybe...perhaps another commercial DVD in the future. The music, the performances are phenomenal and deserve to be captured permanently. Salut!Oct 17, 2008 12:51pm
mmm ! ! !
Montevideo UruguayI don't know what to say, I just saw mr Ponty here in Montevideo a few hours ago. I love him, yes I'm straight but I say with proud that I love him, his music, since I was a kid. The concert was better & better & better than I expected, and I have to say that I expected a brilliant presentation. From de old musics to the new ones, incredible. At the end, I meet him, took a picture and have a signature. To me... like a dream come true... THANKSOct 16, 2008 4:34pm

Santiago CHILEIt could be the title of one of your albums, but it's simply a description of how I felt and still feel during and after yesterday's gig here in Santiago de Chile. I invited my father-in-law, as he likes jazz, but hasn't been really in touch with fusion in general and particularly Ponty's music either. He was delighted, enjoying every part of the show, whistling and clapping each and every demonstration of virtuosism that the four musicians on stage offered to us, the grateful attendants. Thanks again for your music, for visiting our country and expecting to see you soon again. Sergio BTW: I got your last record at the gig and later noticed it is called "The Acatama Experience". Our desert and also the name of our 3rd Region is called ATACAMA (the "T" before the "C"). It seems to be a mistake or is it rather a "creative effort"? :-D Anyway, it is truly a remarkable job and it's now playing in my office ;-)Oct 14, 2008 2:04pm
La Serena IV región CHILEHace 20 años escuché por primera vez Cosmic Messenger y he seguido disfrutando cada album que has editado . Viajo mañana desde La Serena a Viña del Mar para deleitarme nuevamente. Maestro...bienvenido ¡¡¡¡Oct 13, 2008 12:01pm
ALBI Midi Pyrénnées FranceBonjour ! Notre groupe de Jazz Rock Fusion, MOZAÏK Group ( www.myspace.com/mozaikgroup ) travaille actuellement sur des arrangements de "Enigmatic Ocean" et c'est un vrai plaisir. Nous aimons particulièrement la version du JL Ponty Tour 1982 avec Jamie Glaser à la guitare !! ( + de 20 ans déjà..) Je ne trouve pas par contre de relevé préçis des morceaux de JL Ponty. Je me suis acheté le JL Ponty Collection chez Hal Leonard, mais j'aimerais trouver d'autres relevés plus préçis...( enigmatic ocean) existe t il quelque chose car là, je suis perdu !! Merci d'avance, Raphaël Mozaik GroupOct 13, 2008 10:10am
Temeria/Violinist from Detroit, MI
Detroit Michigan USAHello Mr Ponty: It has been a while since I posted a message. And it has been over a year since you last performed here in Detroit. I will look for you next year "2009". I practice every day as you told me too and I am studying with a new instructor that inspires me (not as much as you though) :o) I listen to your music every day...older and newer. You are and will always be my inspiration...since I was a young child. Take care...good health and I hope to see you perform very soon. P.S. I saw Ralph Armstrong performing here in Detroit a few times this summer.Oct 9, 2008 3:29pm
