Jean-Luc Ponty (b. 1942) is a virtuoso French violinist and jazz composer. Born on the 29th September 1942 in Avranches, France, he was trained as a professional classical violinist at the Paris Conservatory. His attraction to jazz was propelled by Miles Davis's and John Coltrane's music. He has worked with St├ęphane Grappelli, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Frank Zappa, and has appeared on over seventy recordings. In 1977 Ponty pioneered the use of the five-string electric violin, with a lower C string. Read more on Last.fm
