4 stars Side One - 5 Stars 1. God-Bird-Change - Mingo Lewis composition - fiery guitar...classic Di Meola 2. Electric Rendezvous - Al goes hard rock!!! Co-highlight of the album 3. Passion, Grace and Fire - Stunning acoustic duet with de Lucia, other co-highlight

Side Two - 2.5 Stars 1. Cruisin' - Bland funk from Jan Hammer...saved by coo Hammond Organ near the end... 2. Black Cat Shuffle - Slightly less bland funk from Philippe Saisse... 3. Ritmo de la Noche - Latin work-out...standard DiMeola bossa-nova 4. Somalia - Acoustic...nice, nothing special 5. Jewel Inside a Dream - Acoustic...Hammer adds some interesting noodling

If you're a fan, get it for the first three tracks...3.75 stars...excellent musicianship justifies rounding up to a solid 4...

Rutgers Joe | 4/5 |
