3 stars Di Meola's acoustic album, recorded with his new project New Sinfonia musicians, with participation of guitarist Chris Carrington and Al's regular collaborator acoustic guitarist and producer Hernan Romero ( he is playing keyboards and sings there).

All album's music is based in Argentinean neo-tango genius Astor Piazzola's music (however includes Di Meola's composition as well). The music is fully acoustic, mostly guitars and bandoneon sound, with minimum of percussion and rhythm. Melodies all are what you're expecting from Argentinean neo-tango, perfectly played and arranged. But whenever there is not a big differences in style, this album, being great work for acoustic guitar lovers and neo- tango fans, could be a bit boring listening for jazz-rock listener.

Starting from this work, Al Di Meola will record a serie of world fusion albums during nearest 15 years.
