Artist: Ponty, Jean-Luc
Description:
Personnel: Jean-Luc Ponty (violone, baritone violin, electric violin); Frank Zappa (guitar); Vincent DeRosa (descant, French horn); Milton Thomas (viola); Harold Bemko (cello); Jonathan Meyer (flute); Gene Cipriano (oboe, English horn); Donald Christlieb, Donald Christello (bassoon); Ernie Watts (soprano saxophone, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone); Ian Underwood (tenor saxophone); Arthur Maebe (flugelhorn, French horn); George Duke (piano, electric piano); Gene Estes (vibraphone, percussion); John Heard , Wilton Felder (electric bass); Dick Berk, Art Tripp, John Guerin (drums). Audio Remasterer: Andrew Thompson . Liner Note Author: Leonard Feather. Recording information: Thee Experience, Hollywood, CA (09/??/1969-10/06/1969). Arranger: Frank Zappa.

Canteloupe Island was recorded in 1969 while Ponty was with Frank Zappa. This set includes five Zappa originals. The composer participated, as did several of his past and present Mothers of Invention including Ian Underwood and George Duke. In the 21st century, this music is some of the best that fusion had to offer. It's lyrical, warm, fantastically performed, and it's got plenty of heart and soul. It contains Zappa's sense of humor and incredible harmonic vocabulary, Ponty's fiery technique and soulful playing, intensely gifted rhythm sections with Arthur III Tripp on drums, bassist Wilton Felder, and Duke, of course, playing electric piano throughout. Zappa's fine compositions include "King Kong," "Idiot Bastard Son," "Twenty Small Cigars," "America Drinks and Goes Home," and the classic "Music for Electric Violin and Low Budget Orchestra," the latter conducted by Underwood.
