Twenty-One recordings, countless awards, (including three gold albums) and six million albums later, Al DiMeola is still challenging himself and his music. A bona fide guitar hero and perennial poll-winner, Al Di Meola has been recognized internationally over the past four decades as virtuoso of the highest order. His star quickly ascended.
And while his dazzling technique on both acoustic and electric guitars has afforded him regal status among the hordes of fretboard aficionados who regularly flock to his concerts, the depth of Di Meola's writing along with the soulfulness and his inherent lyricism of his guitaristic expression have won him legions of fans worldwide beyond the guitar aficionado set.
A prolific composer and prodigious six-string talent, Di Meola has amassed over 75 albums as a leader while collaborating on a dozen or so others with the likes of the fusion supergroup Return To Forever (with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White), the celebrated acoustic guitar trio featuring fellow virtuosos John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia, and the Rite of Strings trio with bassist Clarke and violinist Jean-Luc Ponty.
JazzTimes: [A] strong and varied effort that moves mostly in the acoustic direction and features some high-profile personnel.
JazzTimes: The album is a mixture of funk, fusion and world music, and Di Meola has his well-known imprint all over each song.
