4 stars Jean Luc Ponty one of the major figures in jazz fusion world in last almost half century with a vast discography and long career always delight my ears. Mystical adventures from 1981 is among his better albums and for sure among the best in jazz fusion. The virtuosity of the musician is top notch but aswell he puts his heart and soul in every tune he compose and plays. This album together with Enigmatic ocean are my fac releases from him. THis is a very pleasent ride, where he shines on every piece, from the lenghty opening track Mystical Adventures Suite, who goes from smooth and elegant passages to more up tempo, the violin is proeminent and very solid all through out. I presonaly find little more intresting the rest of the pieces on athe album Rhythms of Hope, As or Jig are extremly well crafted and inventive, complex and complicated but never geting boring one second, he manage together with the rest of the musicians to create a very elaborated and pleasent album all the way. In the end a beautiful album that will pleases every serious jazz fusion fan and goes recommended for sure. 4 well desearved stars, excellent cover art aswell, remind me at first glance of Yes cover arts.
