Over 40 years ago, young Al Di Meola released his second, extremely successful studio album Elegant Gypsy. With "Elegant Gypsy & More LIVE", recorded last year during his acclaimed US tour of the same name, he is revisiting some of his brilliant, earlier works such as Race With Devil On Spanish Highway, Flight Over Rio, Midnight Tango or Egyptian Danza. With the just recently released studio album "OPUS", Al Di Meola not only topped the TOP 5 of the Official German Jazz Album Charts and burst to position of the US Contemporary Jazz Album Charts, but once again underlines his flexibility and quality as a Guitar superstar. Al Di Meola - the brilliant, virtuosic t, composer and arranger, who is considered to be one of the most innovative musicians and a living legend - is a pioneer of blending world music and jazz.

The album that started this reverence, you ask" Well, that would be guitar extraordinaire Al DiMeola's 1977 masterpiece, Elegant Gypsy. What truly shines on this record is the varied, textured soundscapes presented with each track. There is an eclectic cohesion of styles at hand. Another aspect of the album that I find pleasing is that no instrument overshadows another. Even with the production of the album, no singular player seems to be mixed louder or more prevalent than any other. An excellent example would be the final track, 'Elegant Gypsy Suite,' an uninhibited jam, a melting pot of numerous playing styles and genres stewed into quite the musical experience. The sound that is produced during this track is unique, with DiMeola throwing in some fabulous lead lines, alternating in speed to fit the ever-changing tempo and feel of the song.

With Elegant Gypsy & More LIVE, recorded last year during his acclaimed US tour of the same name, he is revisiting some of his brilliant, earlier works such as Race With Devil On Spanish Highway, Flight Over Rio, Midnight Tango or Egyptian Danza. Al Di Meola established himself in the early 70s by playing with artists such as Chick Corea. With the just recently released studio album OPUS, Al Di Meola not only topped the TOP 5 of the Official German Jazz Album Charts and burst to position of the US Contemporary Jazz Album Charts, but once again underlines his flexibility and quality as a Guitar superstar.

Elegant Gypsy is the second album by American jazz fusion guitarist Al Di Meola. It was released in 1977 on Columbia Records. Elegant Gypsy was a follow-up album to Di Meola's debut release, Land of the Midnight Sun. The distinctive music on the album is a speedy fusion of jazz and rock, with lightning-fast guitar riffs intermixed with lyrical acoustical passages. The songs include explorations of Latin music themes, including acoustic genres like flamenco Elegant Gypsy won an annual award for Best Guitar Album in Guitar Player Magazine

With his acclaimed current studio album 'OPUS', Al Di Meola not only topped the TOP 5 of the Official German Jazz Album Charts and burst to position in the US Contemporary Jazz Album Charts, but once again proved his status as a 'guitar superstar'. His curriculum vitae is full of exciting musical moments and incredible works and he still finds ways to challenging himself: he is a jack-of-all-trades, who does not take a real break in supposedly quieter times. With 'Elegant Gypsy & More LIVE'; partly recorded on his very successful 'Elegant Gypsy 40th Anniversary'-US Tour in 2017, Al Di Meola proves once again that jazz music tremendously 'rocks'. Above all, for him it is also a journey back to his musical beginning, which he brings to new heights with fantastic versions of songs like 'Race With Devil On Spanish Highway', 'Flight Over Rio', 'Midnight Tango' or 'Egyptian Danza'.
