4 stars 1st release of a Guitar's Master...

Al Di Meola makes his appearance to the Jazz/ Rock/ Fusion world of music. Nothing would be the same after this. ''Land of the Midnight Sun'' is his first album...

Al Di Meola consists of a guitar master, that composes music, with elements from Jazz, to Fusion, to Latin, to Rock. His extremely high productive ability is well noticed from the first moment. Al manages to perform music never heard before. The changes in his music creatures are awesome, always well arranged, always well-put together, always surprising. At his side, there is an out-spaced cast of musicians, such as Jaco Pastorius (bass master virtuoso), Alphonse Mouzon playing the drums, Mingo Lewis at the percussion and the well-known Barry Miles at the keyboards. All of them consist to a high-tallented band that performs nothing less than the perfection, nothing less than momumental pieces, nothing less than a masterpiece..!!! What else can anyone ask, from this master band?

The production is opera of Al Di Meola's wisdom and ability. Al releases a kind of music, never heard before, and manages to be the faster and most complete guitarist of those years, surely one of the most influential guitarist of all times. His magical trip has is about to begin...

5 stars really...
