CD Review: Clara Ponty's 'Into The Light'

Clara Ponty
Into The Light
Eden Records

Born in Paris, France and raised in Los Angeles, California, Clara Ponty's musical roots are strengthened by her father's violin experience and exposure to multiple genres growing up. As a classically-trained pianist, Clara presents new work with a somewhat jazzy influence and pop-focused vein. The eleven tracks are vocal gems that feature Clara's intimate and sensual voice amidst her delicate piano playing style with a mix violin, bass, rhodes, drums, percussion, guitar, trumpet, cello, and flute. Some of the tracks border on contemporary new age music, while others, reflect a more upbeat, Latin-tinged classicism. At any rate, Clara knows how to delight with Into The Light. ~ Matthew Forss
