4 stars Best Al Di Meola work during some last years. Chick Corea, John Patitucci, Steve Gadd and ADM New Sinfonia team all participated on this album. And most important - there are plenty of ADM electric guitar!

The music is not a jazz fusion of his early years, but world fusion. But differently from his early world fusion works (with New Sinfonia mostly), this work is not such acoustic melancholic Mediterranean music, but full-bodied electric African-Mediterranean songs, with beautiful melodies, difficult rhythms, excellent musicianship, with light jazzy feeling all around. Happily, I heard this musical material during ADM world tour, it sounded live as beautiful as it sounds on this recording.

Possibly, his best world fusion work, very recommended for all ADM fans. And those who loved his electric music some years ago, can easily try this work - you wouldn't be disappointed, I think.
