This compilation accurately summarize the fusion king’s work from the mid to late ’70s through the early ’80s. Di Meola’s compositional strength shines brightly, as does his absolutely blazing guitar work featuring his trademarks, mind boggling speed and precision. Di Meola covers an enormous amount of musical ground. From the graceful power of the epic “Elegant Gypsy Suite,” to the gentle “Bianca’s Midnight Lullaby,” to a rocker like “Cruisin’,” he effortlessly switches between multiple styles, often within the same song. Four (new) bonus tracks are included, “Medley: Short Tales Of The Black Forest/Fantasia Suite For Two Guitars,” “The Wizard,” “Al Di’s Dream Theme,” and “Theme To The Mothership.” All four bonus are live cuts.
