4 stars Beautiful. Elegant. Tasteful.

Those who know me, or know my reviewing style may find it a surprise that I give such a low key recording such a high review, but this album deserves it.

Sometimes you just need something light to listen to, like when relaxing on the porch with an ice cold drink, or entertaining guests at an evening yard party. This is a perfect selection for such occasions. All three of these masters are in top form, all blending well, whether soloing or backing up the other two performers. At no time does anyone hog the spotlight.

Some of these songs have been recorded before, in a different style, like Ponty's "Renaissance" (misspelled "Renassaince" on the CD cover), originally from his excellent album Aurora, but all work well in this grouping.

3 stars I do like this album but to be honest if i'd known it was an acoustic record I would have passed. I'm just not a fan of unplugged albums, i'd rather have Geddy screaming in one ear and Peart pounding his drums in the other if you know what I mean. We do have 3 Fusion legends though in DiMeola, Clarke and Ponty but how much better would this have been if it was electric and Cobham was on the kit ? Oh well, like I said I do like it, but an hour of acoustic music just makes me start to twitch and blink a lot. Not a good sign.

"Indigo" is a good opener with the bass and guitar opening things as the violin joins in before a minute.They all play so tastefully here. Nice bass 4 1/2 minutes in. "Renassaince" sounds really good before a minute with the deep bass, intricate guitar and violin coming and going. "Song To John" is the only track that was partly composed by someone outside this group, namely Chick Corea (with Clarke's help). And the John in the title is John Coltrane. It doesn't really kick in in until around 1 1/2 minutes.The tempo eventually picks up.

"Chilean Pipe Song" kicks in before a minute. Nice bass again before 2 1/2 minutes. "Topanga" has this pastoral, laid back sound. The violin is prominant after 4 1/2 minutes to end it. "Morocco" opens with guitar and bass. It kicks in with violin before a minute. Some clapping too. I like the tasteful violin playing over the bass and guitar in "Change Of Life". "La Cancion De Sofia" is another mellow tune until it changes 3 1/2 minutes in. Some impressive guitar here. "Memory Canyon" is one of the best songs. Check out the guitar / bass 3 1/2 minutes in. More great guitar 5 1/2 minutes in.

This was released in 1995 so most of my favourite performances from these three guys happened 20 years earlier. This is certainly more mature, it just does little for me.

4 stars First of all,it's an acoustic album. Second-it's a perfect acoustic album! Three of fusion great musicians just made it: tasteful, intelligent work without screaming and thunder, but full of sound nuances and perfect technique.

There are no drummer, so don't expect too much energy or drive. But for sure it isn't sleepy recording. In many senses,it's similar to three of well-known albums of Sl Di Meola-Paco De Lucia-McLaughlin. There as well were three acoustic albums of strings. But whenever in "The Rite Of Strings" beside of Al Di Meola guitar exists violin and some rhythm section ( ok, just Clarke's bass), the music is more structurised and has a bit diversified.

I like DiMeola-DeLucia-McLaughlin acoustic albums, but to be honest, after some songs all compositions sound similar. The reason is quite specific sound of just three acoustic guitars at once. There, in Clarke-DiMeola-Ponty album situation is better: combination of all acoustic guitar,bass and violin let the musicians play more different music.

In it atmosphere, album is soft, a bit nostalgic ( in DiMeola latin jazz tradition), with some warmless coming from Ponty's violin. There are some classic and some original compositions on that album."Indigo" from the very beginning gives you the understanding about the music's waiting for you on that album. "Topanga" brings to warm space of latin-jazz scented with rich acoustic violin's solos. "Morocco " represents perfect violin and guitar interplay.

All in all, I am sure, if you like DiMeola-DeLucia-McLaughlin acoustic trilogy, it's an album for you. As well, it could be interesting for all DiMeola acoustic guitar fans,and for all lovers of good acoustic fusion. Realy very strong example of it!
