Sudden blasts of brass synth consecrates Hammer’s complete genius in my mind, but when he dishes out a duel with Al, it’s just bloody merciless. This concluding track begins with an acoustic guitar work combined beautifully with keyboard in an ambient opening.

AL DI MEOLA Electric Rendezvous review by dreadpirateroberts

After his ambitious double album, Splendido Hoteland live album Friday Night in San Francisco the fusion wizard strips back his cast, song length and compositional scope for the more straight forward Electric Rendezvous. If you prefer his more mellow later work, this might be too heavy.

Ritmo De La Noche 4: Things get even slightly dissonant for a while, swerving back into yet another mood once again, the guitar getting heavy and fiery. All songs are not too much connected between each other. This is so goodits absurd!

Side One – 5 Stars 1.

But I think this is last strong Al Di Meola album from his earlier period. Di Meola returns to a smaller format. Some of them are perfect, some just average.


Jewel Inside A Dream 4: A faint serenity begins to grow in stature, very much like classic Ponty, evolving into a series of detours, veers and elechric. Results cached 12h Items ordered by ending time Showing all 61 items.

He will go for acoustic pop-world music later, and will return in form after some years only. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker. And if you ever had a doubt about Al’s Latin side, well its all there on display with “Ritmo de la Noche”.

It’s a wonderful duet of two guitar heroes in a great composition. It’s right up there with di Meola’s best, and di Meola plays a bit heavier than I’m used to being in the 80s helped with this aspect I assume.

The title track is even sprightlier, all kinds of frayed nerve endings in the fingers, if you see what I mean. Al di Meola – Electric Rendezvous: The organ solo during interlude is really stunning.

Speaking of which, “Jewel Inside a Dream” puts this majestic performance to bed, a soothing lullaby that showcases DiMeola’s clear sense of sonic wizardry Oh yeah, love that cover art, suits the music inside to a Tee 5 gatos negros electricos social review comments Review Permalink Posted Tuesday, October 23, Review this album Report Review The music produced is so relaxing with relatively simple arrangement.

Black Cat Shuffle 3: It feels like his heart is once again in it. All the instruments are very well played, and even if this is guitar dominated music it has a full band sound and feeling much like his early albums. It is for sure Di Meola is in search on his future direction here. The song turns complex and it finally returns to the intro part. As other reviewers have noted, these are the highlights, and they also constitute the A side. You are not logged, please complete authentication before continuing use forum credentials.


AL DI MEOLA — Electric Rendezvous (review)

Cruisin’ is a simple rocker, and Black Cat Shuffle is exactly as it sounds: Passion, Grace And Fire 5: My reason is simple: I am pretty sure when Carlos Santana first heard this, his knee-jerk a would have been to call a lawyer, suggesting plagiarism but within seconds, yielding to the beauty of the melody and the tremendous playing by all involved. Other sites in the MAC network: Ei title track is also quite memorable–once the guys move into the central groove of the song, they are absolutely unstoppable, and it’s awesome to behold, with a few cool time signature and tempo changes to boot.

God-Bird-Change – Mingo Lewis composition – fiery guitar Not all is of one mood though, and I am glad for that. Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved. It’s really an excellent music!

The solemn acoustic gem “Somalia” is no slouch, a deeply sad and melancholic guitar tour de force, serves a perfect segue to the previous jewel. Participated musicians are still all stars incl. The song itself is rich in styles and tempo changes. You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.
