An album where all the music is the same becomes boring quickly, no matter how good All the instruments are very well rfndezvous, and even if this is guitar dominated music it has a full band sound and feeling much meolq his early albums. Fantastic album due the ensemble, for me this is the best band that Al DiMeola ever worked with.

But only in part.

Mingo Lewis is the only musician that stayed the same from the debut album. This has always been one of my favorite Al Di Meola albums. In fact album sounds more as collection of electtic different styles.

AL DI MEOLA Electric Rendezvous reviews

The album kicks-off with a hard driving rhythm section, mainly dominated by percussion work, “God-Bird-Change” 3: The 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. 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.


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

The interlude part with percussion work is really interesting.

I see this as a masterpiece just from the sheer luc Co-highlight of the album 3. The rhythm section is so tight, it will make one cringe with delighted respect.

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. Forum user Forum password. It’s really an excellent music! It feels like his heart is once again in it. You can find some heavy electric fusion pieces there, but some acoustic guitar songs as well.

Not all is of one mood though, and I am glad for that. And he did no wrong at all as this song is composed wonderfully with high energy and upbeat tempo.

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 This is my all-time favorite DiMeola composition, loved it to death for decades.


Al di Meola – Electric Rendezvous: Ritmo De La Noche 4: This time, the duet is between Al and Paco on their acoustic guitar and their sounds were recorded at different channels of your stereo set. Some of them are perfect, some just average. All songs are not too much connected between each other.

Electric Rendezvous

Smooth and fast, like a torrential rainstorm of talent. And some acoustic Latin melodies with pop elements. Lewis on congas and Gadd on drums really bring back the Elegant Gypsy magic they once created The song’s beat is relatively stable with minimum tempo or style changes. This concluding track begins with an acoustic guitar work combined beautifully with keyboard in an ambient opening. Latest members reviews Di Meola returns to a smaller format. The rest of the song contains great combination of acoustic guitar and keyboard.

Cruisin’ is a simple rocker, and Black Cat Shuffle is exactly as it sounds: But I think this is last strong Al Di Meola album from his earlier period.

The music produced is so relaxing with relatively simple arrangement.
