Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars The Brazilian only release is compilation from three Al Di Meola albums - Cielo e Terra, Soaring Through a Dream, and Tirami Su. Acoustic, atmospheric album, totally different from early Al Di Meola electric fusion works. "Coral" is Keith Jarrett's composition, taken from Cielo e Terra album."Rhapsody Of Fire" and "Beijing Demons" are his earlier world fusion compositions both.

In fact , albums all is strong and representative. The only problem is very characteristic for Di Meola from that period - high technique level is combined with very cold , emotionally colourless musicianship.

In fact , this release is based on "The Best of Al Di Meola: The Manhattan Years" Blue Note album ( with different cover and songs order). This album is a part of the collection, published by the Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo from Sep 30th, 2007 to Feb 3rd, 2008,which consisted of 20 books (which tell the story of the featured artists), plus 20 CD (re- released albums or compilations). To promote the collection release, the company developed a massive marketing campaign broadcasted by radios and TV stations.
