The violin's an unlikely instrument for a jazz tune - but as you'll hear in this set, it's one that can sound pretty darn great when handled by the right artist! The collection has a strong focus on European use of the violin in jazz during the 60s and 70s - in a movement that took the instrument strongly past its older swing-based use in the US, and into hipper territory that really explored its sonic properties with a lot more depth! Some tunes have a rootsy feel, others are more open and electric - and a good bit of this material (nearly all of it) was recorded for the MPS label, and benefits from both the strong production and new freedoms allowed to its artists.

Jazz

"This album has been recorded live at Berlin Jazz Festival 1971 on Nov 7 in the Philharmonic Hall. Ponty is clearly the dominant force behind this extraordinary violin meeting with Harris, Urbaniak and Brantner, a follow up to his 1966 'Violin Summit' concert with Grappelli, Smith and Asmussen. Fully half of this release is dedicated to Ponty's potent compositions, including an unaccompanied exploration of "Flipping," a duet with Don Sugarcane Harris on "Astrorama," and "Violin Summit No. II," a finale featuring all four men. Unlike it's predecessor of 1966, the rhythm section is strongly fusion oriented and consists of world famous jazz celebrities. An very important example of jazz violin from the early fusion era." allmusic.com

An amazing two-fer – filled with rare spiritual sounds from Michael White! Spirit Dance is one of the killer albums that White cut for Impulse Records in the early 70 – a sweet set of spiritual jazz that took his instrument to a whole new level! Normally, the violin isn't an instrument we love in jazz, but White really transforms it here – playing it with a stretched-out, spiritual sound that's almost like a saxophone – really hitting a fresh sound that's mighty nice. Other instrumentation includes a nicely organic blend of piano from Ed Kelly, bass from Ray Drummond, and percussion and flutes from Baba Omson – often building in the way you'd get with a Pharoah Sanders album, but with a gentler, more personal sound.
