Al di Meola: WORLD SINFONIA 1991 (Gatefold 2 LP Jacket LP) 2023 Release Date: 2/10/2023
Double vinyl LP pressing housed in gatefold jacket. Reissue. World Sinfonia was originally released in 1991 and was Al di Meola's first album with his World Sinfonia ensemble. On this exceptional album, he successfully combines his unpredictable and spontaneous guitar playing style with a predominantly analogue production.
World Sinfonia is defined by introspection and thoughtful writing, enhanced by the unique artistic connection between Di Meola and Argentinian bandoneon player Dino Saluzzi. The influences on this record range from South American, Spanish and Middle Eastern elements to Argentinian Tango, which is most evident on the memorable 'Last Tango For Astor', an ode to Astor Piazzolla.
