Upcoming Bucharest gigs

On March 11, for the first time in a Capital concert, Jean Luc Ponty will perform at the Palace Hall. The French musician will be accompanied by William Lecomte on keyboards and Guy Akwa Nsangue on bass. Ponty is a well-known French virtuoso violinist and jazz composers, born into a family of classical. In 1969, Frank Zappa composed the music for Jean-Luc’s solo album King Kong (Blue Note). In 1972, Elton John invited Ponty to contribute to his Honky Chateau album. One day after Ponty, special guest at the Hard Rock Café will be legendary Pink Floyd guitarist Snowy White. Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-oriented British electric guitar players – musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock. In the autumn of 1976 he was invited to tour America and Europe with Pink Floyd as their first augmenting musician, a gig which took up most of his time throughout 1977. In 1978 the band’s keyboard player Rick Wright asked him to play guitar on his solo album, entitled ‘Wet Dream,’ which he recorded in the South of France. He was then asked by the Pink Floyd to go to America to rehearse their new show entitled ‘The Wall’.
