5 stars When I saw that no one had offered a review of this record I was both stunned and delighted. Though the first two World Sinfonia sessions are brilliant, lovely works of World fusion, 'The Grande Passion' is something remarkable. The musicians Mr. Di Meola brings together are all top-notch, the compositions carry on the haunting beauty of the World Sinfonia vision, and the recording may be the best sounding piece of phonics I've ever spun on my machine. But what really makes this experience special is the fact that between the orchestra, Latin percussives and Di Meola's Flamenco-rock fire, a real infusion of music occurs at a level never before attained by the jazz rock world in which he is pigeonholed. This is the most passed over of Di Meola's Sinfonia projects but don't let that stop you from enjoying this unsung hero of an album.

4 stars Most monumental World Sinfonia album is recorded with big team of musicians, including Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Al Di Meola plays usual for his World Sinfonia project world fusion, based on Piazzola/Latin American music, but as usual, presented with soft and elegant Mediterranean arrangements. Compositions all are Al's or Piazzola's, music is very acoustic, perfectly arranged, sound is pleasant and never boring.

The only possible ingredient I missed is some fresh air: music is excellent, but very safe. It looks Di Meola found a right formula and continues to explore it. Even Piazzola's one of most popular songs "Libertango" is presented there. Very comfortable music, just needs a bit of new blood to be added to become perfect listening.
