Jean-Luc Ponty temporarily pulls back on electronic display for its own sake, even permitting some acoustic instruments to take the fore, and the recorded sound is drier and less lustrous. Nevertheless, Ponty's urbane Euro-sensibility can still be felt strongly in these carefully conceived and "orchestrated" jazz-rock compositions for his six-piece group

A Taste For Passion is a music studio album recording by JEAN-LUC PONTY (Jazz ive Rock) released in 1979 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Acoustic/electric album by Jean-Luc Ponty sounds surprisingly pleasant. Ponty plays not only electric violin, but electric piano and synths as well. Compositions are melodic, played with good technique and what is even more important - tastefully.
