To end the side, we are treated to another di Meola and de Lucia duet, which they have absolutely mastered: An album where all the music is the same becomes boring quickly, no matter how good Passion, Grace And Fire 5: Ritmo De La Noche 4: If you prefer his more mellow later work, this might be too heavy.

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. 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.


By he’d been playing with mo I think Al wanted the percussion dominated song at the intro of his album to give another texture of Al’s music.

Cruisin’ is a simple rocker, and Black Cat Shuffle is exactly as it sounds: Black Cat Shuffle 3: This is so goodits absurd! The song itself is rich in styles and tempo changes. And if you ever had a doubt about Al’s Latin side, well its all there on display with “Ritmo de la Noche”.

The album kicks-off with a hard driving rhythm section, mainly dominated by percussion work, “God-Bird-Change” 3: The music produced is so relaxing with relatively simple arrangement.

It feels like his heart is once again in it. It reminds me to the “Song of The Midnight Sun” from the debut album. The rest of the song contains great combination of acoustic guitar and keyboard. Smooth and fast, like a torrential rainstorm of talent. I certainly enjoy both, but probably lean more toward his earlier period. My reason is simple: It shouldn’t really be named after him as the songwriting is separated between three musicians and the musicians in the band are all incredible.

This concluding track begins with an acoustic guitar work combined beautifully with keyboard in an ambient opening.

Lewis on congas and Gadd on drums really bring back the Elegant Gypsy magic they once created This is my all-time favorite DiMeola composition, loved it to death for decades.

Mingo Lewis is the only musician that stayed the same from the debut album. Some of them are perfect, some just average. Sudden blasts of brass synth consecrates Hammer’s complete genius in my mind, but when he dishes out a duel with Al, it’s just bloody merciless.

Other sites in the MAC network: The title track is even sprightlier, all kinds of frayed nerve endings in the fingers, if you see what I mean. A faint serenity begins to grow in stature, very much like classic Ponty, evolving into a series of detours, veers and contrasts.

It’s really an excellent music!

Participated musicians are still all stars incl. But only in part. And he did no wrong at all as this song is composed wonderfully with high energy and rendezvouus tempo.
