Piazolla was a true genius and I don't throw that term around lightly , amazing stuff........
Al's Elegant Gypsy is one of my favorites. I'm still kicking my lazy ass for not going to Atlanta when he came through playing the entire E.G. album and I assume more. If any of you caught that show, how was it?
*Edit....decided I would play some E.G.. I have a music on a NAS/local hard drive storage and it had a problem a couple months ago. Took a crap, so to speak. I had backups but had to buy a new one (NAS). About this time, in addition to the whole thing not working, I figured out that random albums/artists were somehow deleted.
Add Al Di Meola to the list. Good thing I have Tidal now as I am playing "Elegant Gypsy & More (Live). Ain't the interwebz amazing?
The clip in the Op had some of my favorite playing I've heard from Al- reminded in a way of Bill Connors' "Theme To The Guardian" album.
I can't say I'm a huge fan of Al's music, but pieces like this are when he is at his best for me as a listener.
Al is simply a monster! I wish I had 1/32 of his talent.
Al has gotten me into Piazzolla.
