This song is like a break as the composition seems very straightforward and accessible to different ears, I think. My reason is simple: Different styles all packed into one seamless parcel. As other reviewers have noted, these are the highlights, and they also constitute the A side. To end the side, we are treated to another di Meola and de Lucia duet, which they have absolutely mastered: Latest members reviews Di Meola returns to a smaller format.

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, Rendezvohs this album Report Review You are not logged, please complete authentication before continuing use forum credentials.

Electric Rendezvous compares favorably to many of his other albums, and also to some fusion giants Jeff Beck, most notably. Mingo Lewis is the only musician that stayed the same from the debut album. 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.

By he’d been playing with mo The title track is even sprightlier, all kinds of frayed nerve endings in the fingers, if you see what I mean.

This is my all-time favorite DiMeola composition, loved it to death for decades. The song’s beat is relatively stable with minimum tempo or style changes.

The organ solo during interlude is really stunning. If you like di Meola’s earlier, hard-driving fusion work, you’ll love the first three songs. Things get even slightly dissonant for a while, swerving back into yet another mood once again, the guitar getting heavy and fiery. But only in part.

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.

I think Al wanted the percussion dominated song at the intro of his album to give another texture of Al’s music.
