Album Review

Al di Meola's fifth of seven fusion albums as a leader for Columbia is a typically fiery effort, with di Meola joined by keyboardist Jan Hammer, electric bassist Anthony Jackson, drummer Steve Gadd, percussionist Mingo Lewis, and guest spots for flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucía ("Passion, Grace & Fire") and keyboardist Philippe Saisse. This lesser-known effort is easily recommended to fans of rock-ish jazz guitar.

Customer Reviews

Al at his brightest...

I was 15 when I discovered this album at the public library in 1981. I was completely blown away, and to this day Al is one of my favorites. Incredible guitar work interlaced with passionate melodies. Al in recent years has become kind of predictable, but this record in my mind was an amazing studio effort and worth every cent. Don't miss passion grace & fire, blinding acoustic work by the trio, and my other fav is ritmo de la noche... watch those riffs....!!!! SMOKE comes out of that guitar! :)

Electric Rendezvous ...O' YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a pivotal album in that it merged his best upbeat, and dare I say rockin' gooves, with his sensual and lyrical side.Even in some of the more pensive moments,he still brings the verve and vigor.I love the title song and, "Cruisin'" is bad to the bone!! You don't have to have an appreciation of guitar(technical side) to enjoy this magnum opus.To me, this is his most palatable music for the masses.Exquisite and beautiful...worth having in your collection(list it under "passion,grace, and AWESOME")!!
