1. My wife and I saw Jean-Luc Ponty in Boston about 40+ years ago, one of the best concerts

we have ever seen, and we have experienced a lot of concerts in our lives. Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, John Scofield, Gentle Giant, Larry Carlton, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Al Dimeola, Steve Hackett, Peter Gabriel, Deodato, lots of Classical Music, etc. etc., Jean-Luc Ponty was special.

The band Jean-Luc Ponty had was incredible, at one time he came out by himself, looped about six tracks with his violin and then soloed against it, it was magical. All the above mentioned are magical.

If there are any fans of of the old Genesis when Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett were part of the band (up to "Trick of the Tail&quot , do go and see Steve Hackett, I have seen him twice, tried to see him this year again but the tickets were sold out after the third day. Go and watch that concert, it is fantastic. He is on his "Watcher of the Sky 50 years tour" right now, it is like watching the album, but better because he does add to it without bastardizing the music, it is glorious.
