Al Di Meola - World Sinfonia - (1991 full album)

That power-house formula of dizzying speed, demanding unison lines, and rock intensity continues on the group's Columbia debut, "Romantic Warrior" and carries over to Di Meola's debut as a leader, "Land Of The Midnight Sun", released the same year on Columbia. There are some down points, however, even though these points actually account for what isn't in the album. Meola and Paco De Lucia are obviously accomplished guitar virtuosos and this tune proves their ability. The rhythm section is so tight, it will make one cringe with delighted respect. And if you ever had a doubt about Al's Latin side, well its all there on display with "Ritmo de la Noche". This is a master class performance and one that should be heard by all progheads. Things get even slightly dissonant for a while, swerving back into yet another mood once again, the guitar getting heavy and fiery. The guitar work is astounding and is relentless in creative styles, from speed picking to soaring string bends, the man is a master. In spite of the whole album being filled with them, there are three in particular that amaze me every single time I listen to them: the guitar lines in Flight Over Rio, which make us feel like we are indeed inside an airplane and the solo is just mind blowing ; the speeding melodies of Race With Devil On Spanish Highway, which perfectly translate the feeling of being behind a racing car, the speed, the competition, the meandering curves. Even Anthony Jackson plays the game with style and velocity. The title track is even sprightlier, all kinds of frayed nerve endings in the fingers, if you see what I mean. 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 Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved. Al di Meola has been regarded, both in jazz rock and elsewhere, as one of the best guitarists of all time. The guitars hold onto the melody and at times get funky, and there is a really nice finger picking thing with some speedy work and a wandering bassline that consistently maintains the rhythm. This is my favourite track on the album feeling like the type of music heard in the 70s where twanging guitar is layered with hyper paced percussion. It opens with some quirky time sigs and a jazz fusion feel. It feels exactly like you are in a speeding automobile; and the impressive layers of guitar music in the Elegant Gypsy Suite, which, by the way, is the song that sounds the closest to traditional progressive rock. But the album probably won't excite much enthusiasm, as you might have noticed from this lukewarm yet wholehearted endorsement. Well, at least that was how I though up until putting my hands on Elegant Gypsy. I really love the chemistry between them. Though the tour proved that the intensity was still very much alive, no record was released of this powerhouse fusion unit, together{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} This is so good , its absurd! With the exception of an occasional keyboard and some quiet percussion, Di Meola handled all the instruments himself, and some of the orchestration: presumably digital, since no actual orchestra is credited. The guitarist was a month shy of his sixty-first birthday when the album was released, and his trademark white-lightning solos had become almost incidental to the more classical muse he was pursuing at the time. This nearly 9-minute composition with Latin rock flavor, some progressive elements and mood changes. So instead of just mentioning Brazil it would be positive to actually mention it musically. Al uses both acoustics and electric guitars. In other words, don't expect any mile-a-minute guitar heroics here. Merging jazz rock, Latin and Spanish music and, occasionally, progressive rock, Elegant Gypsy accounts for one of the most impressive albums recorded in the jazz fusion genre. The first is 'Alien Chase on Arabian Desert'. Al di Meola, however, managed to do that here. The album is also arguably longer than it needed to be: a common complaint since the premature demise of vinyl. While the rest of the album doesn't quite live up to the brilliance of the second half of the album, the first is quite the entertaining affair save the rather ho hum attempt at a J. Yes, the guitars do play a huge part here, but so do the keyboards, that, at times, work together with the guitars in a call and response style. Too much of a good thing isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can certainly present a challenge with music of such clinical virtuosity. The finale "Short Tales Of The Black Forest" sounds like a mini Return To Forever reunion with Chic Corea providing both piano and marimba and easily sounds like it could have been slipped on to the "Romantic Warrior" album and no one would notice. Mediterranean Sundance, on its turn, tries and mixes Spanish guitar to already spicy mix of jazz and Latin American combination employed in Elegant Gypsy. Al uses a lot of fast-picked muted notes and overdubbed counterpoint with lovely piano arrangement by Chick Corea. Second and this is more of a personal thing , I think this album could have been stretched or more songs could have been added to it in order to make it more musically diverse. The guitar work is beautiful, particularly on 'Midnight Tango' with lovely Spanish flavours, and some wonderful piano augmentations. However, most the album revolves around the stringed instrument. Al went on to dominate the Best Jazz Guitarist category, winning five consecutive years through , while also earning "Best Guitar LP" awards in for "Casino" and in for "Splendido Hotel". Different styles all packed into one seamless parcel. The other songs are quite good as well, but they don't have such memorable moments as those three in particular. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}At least there are two tracks that in my opinion should be listed among Al di Meola's best songs. I didn't expect it to blow me away as it did but it is so good it is impossible to ignore. Al here presents us with a barrage of unbelievable guitar lines and strikingly impressive ideas and motifs. The symphonic strings are a serene nuance that resonates with my senses, and it gets quite wild at the end with African congas and bongos in a short burst of inspiration. Review by tszirmay Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator. Rating and Final Thoughts Even some 50 years ago, doing something new with solely a guitar was a difficult thing. The track then meanders into soft and loud passages that alternate in perfect harmony until its end. As one might expect from a solo album of a guitarist, Elegant Gypsy is mostly about the guitars, but not exclusively. This is my all-time favorite DiMeola composition, loved it to death for decades. This song has a nice theme, which is played in several different keys and paces. The unfortunate cover photo - another in a series of dour, narcissistic Di Meola self-portraits - is, for better or worse, an accurate illustration of the music on offer: handsome yes, but lacking the natural warmth and vitality of his earliest recordings. Review by stefro Prog Reviewer. He returned to his old electrified ways briefly with 's "Electric Rendez-vous" and its follow-up, "Tour De Force Live". I've heard great things about this album, and I'm ever so glad to have this in my collection, it really is great. But for the most part the music is invariably thoughtful, refined, largely but not exclusively acoustic, and entirely classical is approach, albeit played with often astonishing dexterity. Each of the fourteen short tracks was impeccably arranged and played, but can sometimes be a little too detached in their dispassionate complexity. Good album with at least two brilliant songs.. Another thing which he does way right here and that doens't go quite as smoothly in Return to Forever is that everything gets its due space; there isn't a million things happening at the same time and when that happen they are the center of everything and every other instrument work around that thing mostly guitar or keyboard lines. 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. Guitar Player magazine named Di Meola "best new talent" for on the strength of his playing on "No Mystery". Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker. It makes a nice break on the album after the dense musicianship previously. Long story short, if Al could not pull it wile together with three other equally talented musicians, I doubted Mr. While the second title track is a nine minute plus jazz-fusion behemoth that is pretty damned good and displays some veritable guitar maestrohood, it is without a doubt side two of the original vinyl release which constitutes the just shy of ten minute "Suite Golden Dawn" and the closing "Short Tales Of The Black Forest" that are the true masterpieces of this debut release. Good things come in small packages and although this is short it is certainly an excellent example of instrumental jazz fusion. In any way, these "problems" do not actually interfere in the album's overall quality. A faint serenity begins to grow in stature, very much like classic Ponty, evolving into a series of detours, veers and contrasts. With those impressive credits, Al was instantly inducted into Guitar Player's Gallery of the Greats, becoming the youngest player in the magazine's history ever accorded that honor. First, despite the references to Brazil in some song titles, there is no musical reference to the country; Al limits himself to Latin American music, which in no circumstance includes the South American country. Review by Progfan Prog Reviewer. The album starts off with the Santana-esque "The Wizard" which is a percussive laden drum frenzy which introduces the world to DI MEOLA's unique world of jazz-fusion with his gypsy ethnic flair that shows his blossoming interest in Latin rhythms, Mediterranean cultures and flamenco. If you want to listen to an album that will definitely not let you down, with impressive guitar work and guitar-led compositions, look no further: Elegant Gypsy is what you most certainly need. There are also parts that bring the excellent "Fire Garden Suite" by Steve Vai to mind which shows how influential DI MEOLA's technical prowess and compositional skills would be so influential for guitar virtuosos that followed. If true he succeeded handsomely, with some of the richest and most relaxed music yet heard from the erstwhile pyrotechnic axe master. The album closes on another epic 'Elegant Gypsy Suite' clocking 9 minutes. Bach sonata in the form of "Sarabande" but at hardly the focus of the album. 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. And it's a truly solo effort too. I am pretty sure when Carlos Santana first heard this, his knee-jerk reaction 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. While this is a AL DI MEOLA album through and through, he did have a little help with his friends from Return To Forever as well as other musical maestros with each contributing on different tracks, only this time HE was the band leader and got to lead the way. Judging from its pretentious title and regal coat-of-arms artwork, Di Meola might have intended the album to be a summation of his life and career thus far. I just can't quite put my finger on it, maybe because of the huge amount of things that aren't right, but sometimes I just get awestruck as to how such a competent and talented group of musicians could compose some tunes that are, in my opinion, straight up boring. On these last two tracks we get some of the most versatile and beautifully constructed guitar music that emerged from the 70s. Smooth and fast, like a torrential rainstorm of talent. His signature sound, the ringing sustain of a Les Paul played through a Marshall stack is an integral part of al those projects. Here we can relax again with twin acoustics playing very melodic romantic music. The guitar picking gets frenetic later and there is a soaring lead break that spins wildly out of control, and leaves me breathless. It's a pity he then insisted on performing his own drum accompaniment on several tracks, discreetly to be sure, but in an otherwise beautiful interlude like "Broken Heart" still a bit jarring in its amateur over-earnestness. The crystal clear guitar tones echo in the eardrums and provides a relaxing experience, but one will be astonished at the extraordinary dexterity of the guitarists especially towards the end when the pace quickens. Review by Neu! Midnight Tango is, as the name implies, a tango inspired song where Al uses his proficient guitar abilities to merge the Latin rhythm with jazz rock, resulting in a very interesting combination of both. Even though I could see that he was a very talented guitar player listening to the few Return to Forever albums I own, having a perfect technique and flawless musicianship, Return to Forever's music would, in one way or another, eventually turn me down. In all, an admirable effort, with moments of genuine instrumental beauty "Ardour"; "Babylon". But I can't argue with the results, which obviously come from a part of the composer's heart not often opened to public scrutiny.
