Consistently imaginative, Enigmatic Ocean is one of Jean-Luc Ponty's finest accomplishments. Often aggressive but sometimes reflective and moody, this CD is as unpredictable as it is adventurous.

Enigmatic Ocean is not simply a solo work by grand violin player Jean-Luc Ponty, the album presents a whole band full of very talented and famous musicians from the jazz rock realm, each musician being as unique and as vital as Jean-Luc is for the music that Enigmatic Ocean offers, so it's definitely a group work rather than a solo. Also quite impressive is the insightful and passionate drumming of Steve Smith, who went on to lead the superb fusion band
