Artist: Al Di Meola

Recording: Elegant Gypsy & More

Year: 2020

From The Jazz Word: 40 years ago, Di Meola released his second studio album entitled, Elegant Gypsy. Now the guitar master is releasing Elegant Gypsy & More LIVE, a brilliant collection of songs recorded last year during his US tour. Out of the six original tracks on Elegant Gypsy Di Meola revisits three, “Race With Devil On Spanish Highway,” “Flight Over Rio” and “Midnight Tango.” The & more songs on Elegant Gypsy & More LIVE range from a Led Zepplin cover to a selection from his time spent with Chick Corea. This live album perfectly captures the passion and fluidity the guitar genius is most known for with each selection showcasing his virtuosity blend of world music, rock and jazz.

The Led Zepplin cover song is Black Dog with a Violin player doing his best impersonation of Robert Plant. Race With the Devil on a Spanish Highway is as good as instrumental rock comes.

He's still got it! I've seen him a few times the last few years. The Saban Theater in CA, and City Winery Chicago. Great shows all! Long time fan.

It'll be fun to hear the live stuff.
