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. Things get even slightly dissonant for a while, swerving back into yet another mood once again, the guitar getting heavy and fiery.

AL DI MEOLA Electric Rendezvous review by dreadpirateroberts

Side One – 5 Stars 1. Forum user Forum password. In fact album sounds more as collection of few different styles.

I see this as a masterpiece just from the sheer luc After his ambitious double album, Splendido Hoteland live album Friday Night in San Francisco the fusion wizard strips back his cast, song length and compositional scope for the more straight forward Electric Rendezvous.

Cruisin’ is a simple rocker, and Black Cat Shuffle is exactly as it sounds: Electric Rendezvous compares favorably to many of his other albums, and also to some fusion giants Jeff Beck, most notably.

The music produced is so relaxing with relatively simple arrangement.

It reminds me to the “Song of The Midnight Sun” from the debut album. Results cached 12h Items ordered by ending time Showing all 61 items. Other sites in the MAC network: It feels like his heart remdezvous once again in it.
