Sunday, September 22, 6:30 pm, $15. Grammy-winning violinist brings a fresh take to the legacy of mentor and kindred spirit Jean-Luc Ponty. Grammy-winner Mads Tolling gained international acclaim as a member of the Turtle Island String Quartet. With influences as varied as Pat Metheny, Frank Zappa and Bob Dylan, he eschews pyrotechnic displays, working instead from a hauntingly harmonic slow-burn. This tribute to mentor and kindred spirit Jean-Luc Ponty features fresh takes on the master violinist’s legacy, from Mahavishnu and Zappa to seminal recordings like Enigmatic Ocean and Imaginary Voyage.
