Four LPs by the Europe(an) All Stars were cut during their August 1970 tour in Japan. This is the first one the fourth and last one you'll find here
The list of all four LPs you will find in the comments of the fourth LP - courtesy of bunsen_lamp.
His listing sparked my desire to hear the others...does anyone has the other two: "Our Kind Of Sabi" and "Astrorama"?

Albert Mangelsdorff, trombone
Jean-Luc Ponty, violin
Francy Boland, piano
Eddy Louis, organ
Niels Henning Ørsted-Pedersen, bass
Daniel Humair, drums
Karin Krog, vocals

A1. Queens Of Lufthansa (John Surman)  10:38
A2. Round About Midnight (Th. Monk)    05:42
A3. Maiden Voyage (Wayne Shorter)        04:59
B1. C'est Tout (Jimmy Woode)           10:43
B2. Triple Play (Francy Boland)        10:21
B3. Our Kind Of Sabi (Eddy Louis)

Recorded live at EXPO Theater, Osaka, Japan on 18th & 19th August, 1970.

What a fascinating line-up, I had no idea this grouping had existed! Many thanks.

Nice to hear Jean-Luc in this context. Maiden Voyage is the Herbie Hancock tune. Thanks a lot onx.

I would never have dreamed this line-up existed.

Almost the same line-up (without Eddy Louis) is available at http://prettybrian.blogspot.de/search?updated-max=2012-05-06T08:59:00%2B02:00&max-results=7

Surprises never end. This is truly a rare jewel. Thank you.

Thanks for this. I've searched for Astrorama but I've yet to find a rip. According to descriptions, it's one of Ponty's best early performances and the samples I've heard online bear this out. Apparently an expensive CD reissue exists.

Hi Mew23, thank you kindly for the Astrorama rip. Maybe I make a proper post out of it?!
