•≈•  One of the guitar heroes of fusion, Al di Meola was just 22–years–old at the time of his debut as a leader but already a veteran of Chick Corea’s Return to Forever. The complex pieces (which include the three–part “Suite–Golden Dawn,” an acoustic duet with Corea on “Short Tales of the Black Forest,” and a brief Bach violin sonata show di Meola’s range even at this early stage. With assistance from such top players as bassists Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke, keyboardist Barry Miles, and drummers Lenny White and Steve Gadd, this was a very impressive beginning to di Meola’s solo career.
