The Elegant Gypsy is returning with a fiery electric band and delivering the best of a lifetime of intense jazz fusion. Al Di Meola brings to the stage the lightning fast guitar licks that roar with the passion and precision that made jazz fusion the most innovative music force in generations. Dipping into game changing albums like Elegant Gypsy, Casino, Electric Rendezvous, Orange and Blue, and live album Tour de Force, the show promises an electric evening of sizzling artistry.
A bona fide guitar hero, perennial poll-winner and virtuoso of the highest order, Di Meola has also been recognized over the past 30 years as a prolific composer and respected artist with over 20 recordings as a leader. His creative output to date is staggering, whether it’s with his current World Sinfonia band or past musical endeavors like his electric Tour de Force group with Jan Hammer, Anthony Jackson, Steve Gadd and Mingo Lewis, the internationally acclaimed Trio with fellow guitar superstars John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia, the Rite of Strings trio with Stanley Clarke and Jean-Luc Ponty or the ’70s fusion supergroup Return To Forever with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. And while his dazzling technique has afforded him regal status among the hordes of fretboard aficionados who regularly flock to his concerts, the depth of Di Meola’s writing along with the soulfulness and inherent lyricism of his guitaristic expression have won him legions of fans worldwide beyond the six-string set.
* Patrons with VIP tickets must arrive at 5:00 PM for sound check admission, Q&A and the meet and greet.
