Al di Meola – Electric Rendezvous (Columbia)

Al di Meola has been mentioned here before in Return to Forever. He is a jazz-rock featured guitar player and had his rise in the 70’s when he started playing with Chick Corea at the time of Return of Forever.
He is also known by its Latin influences with acoustic instruments, mainly playing flamenco music.
This work is basically rock and jazz, but it has nothing about basic. The songs are very creative and made me listen to the entire CD without wanting to skip any track.
Highlights to the title track where the riff changes completely every time and there is no repetition. When we think we understood, it changes again.
The recording quality is fairly typical from 80’s, when the recording became digital but still thinking of the analog LPs. Although is a Columbia recording, is very close to the style employed by the GRP in that time. A smooth recording with interesting features. Who likes GRP like me, knows what I’m talking about.

Best regards
Leonardo
