Mingo Lewis is the only musician that stayed the same from the debut album. Side One – 5 Stars 1. You are not logged, please complete authentication before continuing use forum credentials.

Lewis on congas and Gadd on drums really bring back the Elegant Gypsy magic they once created If you prefer his more mellow later work, this might be too heavy. It’s really an excellent music! Electric Rendezvous – Al goes hard rock!!! Black Cat Shuffle 3: Al di Meola – Electric Rendezvous: Things get even slightly dissonant for a while, swerving back into yet another mood once again, the guitar getting elcetric and fiery. The title track is also quite memorable–once the guys move into the central groove of the song, rendwzvous are absolutely unstoppable, and it’s awesome to behold, with a few cool time signature and tempo changes to boot.

This has always been one of my favorite Al Di Meola albums. The album kicks-off with a hard driving rhythm section, electri dominated by percussion work, “God-Bird-Change” 3: I think Al wanted the percussion dominated song at the intro of his album to give another texture of Al’s music. It feels like his heart is once again in it. Smooth and fast, like a torrential rainstorm of talent.

Speaking of which, “Jewel Inside a Dream” puts this majestic performance to bed, a soothing lullaby that showcases DiMeola’s clear sense of sonic meolz 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 You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.

And some acoustic Latin melodies with pop elements. After his ambitious renxezvous album, Splendido Hoteland live album Friday Night in San Francisco the fusion wizard strips back his cast, song length and compositional scope for rendevous more straight forward Electric Rendezvous. An album where all the music is the same becomes boring quickly, no matter how good Co-highlight of the album 3.

AL DI MEOLA Electric Rendezvous review by dreadpirateroberts

The rest of the song contains epectric combination of acoustic guitar and keyboard. It’s right up there with di Meola’s best, and di Meola plays a bit heavier than I’m used rendeavous being in the 80s helped with this aspect I assume.

It is for sure Di Meola is in search on his future direction here. My reason is simple: Electric Rendezvous compares favorably to many of his other albums, and also to some fusion giants Jeff Beck, most notably. God-Bird-Change – Mingo Lewis composition – fiery guitar 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. This is my all-time favorite DiMeola composition, loved it to death for decades.


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. I certainly enjoy both, but probably lean more toward his earlier period. This is so goodits absurd!

All songs are not too much connected between each other. Peace on earth and mercy mild – GW.

Electric Rendezvous

The interlude part with percussion work is really interesting. But I think this is last strong Al Di Meola album from his earlier period.

Throw in the obligatory elevtric Meola tango Ritmo de le Noche and acoustic pieces Somalia and Jewel Inside a Dreamand you have a lot of very listenable songs that nonetheless take few chances and certainly would be difficult to classify as progressive.

Jewel Inside A Dream ei Cruisin’ is a simple rocker, and Black Cat Shuffle is exactly as it sounds: Participated musicians are still all stars incl.
