Forum user Forum password. The song’s beat is relatively stable with minimum tempo or style changes. And some acoustic Latin melodies with pop elements. The album kicks-off with a meeola driving rhythm section, mainly dominated by percussion work, “God-Bird-Change” 3: I see this as a masterpiece just from the sheer luc Results cached 12h Items ordered by ending time Showing all 61 items.

Al Dimeola; Electric Rendezvous on lp.

To end the side, we are treated to another di Meola and de Lucia duet, which they have absolutely mastered: Electric Rendezvous – Al goes hard rock!!! It is for sure Di Meola is in search on his future direction here.

Not all is of one mood though, and I am glad for that. But I think this is last strong Al Di Meola album from his earlier period. 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.


Fantastic album due the ensemble, for me this is the best band that Al DiMeola ever worked with.

This has always been one of my favorite Al Di Meola albums. It’s a wonderful duet of leectric guitar heroes in a great composition.


But only in part. Al di Meola – Electric Rendezvous: My reason is simple: 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. Lewis on congas and Gadd on drums really bring back the Elegant Gypsy magic they once created Sudden blasts of brass synth consecrates Hammer’s complete genius in my mind, but when he dishes out a duel with Al, electeic just bloody merciless.

Black Cat Shuffle 3: The second side is certainly a letdown compared to what came before. The rhythm section is so tight, it will make one cringe with delighted respect. And if you ever had a doubt about Al’s Latin side, well its all there on display with “Ritmo de la Noche”.

It reminds me to the “Song of The Midnight Sun” from the debut album. Smooth and fast, like a torrential rainstorm of talent.


Some of them are perfect, some just average. Cruisin’ is a simple rocker, and Black Cat Shuffle is exactly as it sounds: Rensezvous album where all the music is the same becomes boring quickly, no matter how good The interlude part with percussion work is really interesting. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker. The opener is really a tremendous rocker by any fusion standards, and it has that unmistakable rendezcous of a Mingo Lewis tune.

I certainly enjoy both, but probably lean more toward his earlier period. It shouldn’t really be ellectric after him as the songwriting is separated between three musicians and the musicians in the band are all incredible. 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.

You can find some heavy electric fusion pieces there, but some acoustic guitar songs as well. Electric Rendezvous compares favorably to many of his other albums, and also to some fusion giants Jeff Beck, most notably. This song is like a break as the composition seems very straightforward and accessible to different ears, I think.
