Al Di Meola

Al Di Meola's latest DVD release is bound to surprise some fans in the same way his latest album Consequence of Chaos did - it is electrified! After many years of carving out his jazz / jazz-fusion niche on the acoustic guitar, Di Meola is back to exploring new territory from the sonic point of view of the electric guitar.

His latest album features fifteen original compositions, and features guest artists Chick Corea, Steve Gadd, John Pattitucci, and Barry Miles along with his regular band.

The DVD, Speak a Volcano - Return to Electric Guitar, was filmed last November in Leverkusen and features a number of Di Meola compositions, as well as five tunes from Tango innovator Astor Piazzolla.

For those of you craving a little Di Meola on his familiar Ovation acoustic, here you go!
