The Acatama Experience. Jean-Luc Ponty has dabbled in commercialized music off the beaten path of jazz for quite a number of years, a dilution of the straight-ahead and fusion-oriented music that made him an instantly recognized post-Stéphane Grappelli performer. The Acatama Experience (named after the Atacama Desert in South America, but mispelled on the original album release) is apparently a good one for Ponty, as his "new" style harks back to his emergence in the mid-'70s

The Acatama Experience. This is his first studio recording in some time, and it was inspired by a visit to Chile's Acatama desert. Ponty's laser-like violin - whether acoustic or electric - is at home on all of the CD's 14 smooth-jazz, Latin, and world music tracks. Ponty stirs the stylistic pot with drums, keyboard, and percussion, along with two guitar gods: his homeboy Philipe Catherine and the British master Alan Holdsworth.
