Electric Rendezvous – Al goes hard rock!!! It is for sure Di Meola is in search on his future direction here. The opener is really a tremendous rocker by any fusion standards, and it has that unmistakable feel of a Mingo Lewis tune. The rhythm section is so tight, it will make one cringe with delighted respect.
A faint serenity begins to grow in stature, very much like classic Ponty, evolving into a series of rendezvois, veers and contrasts. The interlude part with percussion work is really interesting. Ritmo De La Noche 4: You can find some heavy electric fusion pieces there, but some acoustic guitar songs as well.
The song’s beat is relatively stable with minimum tempo or style changes. Speaking of which, “Jewel Inside a Dream” puts this majestic performance to bed, a soothing lullaby that showcases DiMeola’s clear sense of sonic wizardry Oh yeah, love that cover art, suits the music inside to a Tee 5 gatos rensezvous electricos social review comments Rdndezvous Permalink Posted Tuesday, October 23, Review this album Report Review I see this as a masterpiece just from the sheer luc Al Dimeola; Electric Rendezvous on lp.
This concluding track begins with an acoustic guitar work combined beautifully with keyboard in an ambient opening. Different styles all packed into one seamless parcel. By he’d been playing with mo I certainly enjoy both, but probably lean more eelctric his earlier period. After some excellent electric fusion albums and one not very successful “Splendido Hotel” trying to change things, Al Di Meola returned back to his roots.
It’s really an excellent music!

It reminds me to the “Song of The Midnight Sun” from the debut album. And if you ever had a doubt about Al’s Latin side, well its all there on display with “Ritmo de la Noche”.
Throw in the obligatory di Meola tango Ritmo de le Noche and acoustic pieces Somalia and Jewel Inside a Dreamand you have a lot of very listenable songs that nonetheless take few chances and certainly would be difficult to classify as progressive. Side One – 5 Stars 1. The song turns complex and it finally returns to the intro part.
AL DI MEOLA Electric Rendezvous review by dreadpirateroberts
This time, the duet is between Al and Paco on their acoustic guitar and their sounds were recorded at different channels of your stereo set. Smooth and fast, like a torrential rainstorm of talent. I am pretty sure when Carlos Santana first heard this, his knee-jerk reaction would have been to call a lawyer, suggesting plagiarism but within seconds, yielding to the beauty of the melody and the tremendous playing by all involved.
Co-highlight of the album 3. The title track is also quite memorable–once the guys move into the central groove of the song, they are absolutely unstoppable, and it’s awesome to behold, with a few cool time signature and tempo changes to boot.

The album kicks-off with a hard driving rhythm section, mainly dominated by percussion work, “God-Bird-Change” 3: I think Al wanted the percussion dominated song at the intro of his album to give another texture of Al’s music.
Some of them are perfect, some just average. And he did no wrong at all as this song is composed wonderfully with high energy and upbeat tempo.

AL DI MEOLA — Electric Rendezvous (review)
All the renvezvous are very well played, and even if this is guitar dominated music it has a full band sound and feeling much like his early albums. He will go for acoustic pop-world music later, and will return in form after some years only.
Things get even slightly dissonant for a while, swerving back into yet another mood once again, the guitar getting heavy and fiery. Peace on earth and mercy mild – GW.
