Hi-Res
Released in February 2018, Opus was a highlight in Al Di Meola’s career in many regards. The tormented artist, the virtuoso obscuring the composer, all of that seemed to be in the guitarist’s past. To the point that at 63, he presented this disc as a premiere. Probably tired of being sometimes only perceived as a six-string pyrotechnician, the American from Jersey City wanted to remind here that he was also a high-profile composer. And this Opus indeed exudes true serenity. In the richness of its sound, in the many colors of the melodies but also in the spaces and silences that crept into his playing, Al Di Meola shaped music filled with simple beauty and where padding has no place. Without asperities but never bland, this album satisfied his long-time fans… Five months later, the same Al Di Meola takes advantage of this clear return to grace to also remind us that the stage is his favorite playground. With Elegant Gypsy & More Live, he gathers recent live versions, as virtuoso as possible, of his hits Race With Devil On Spanish Highway, Fight Over Rio, Midnight Tango and Egyptian Danza, but also various covers (impressive reinterpretations of Chick Corea’s Señor Mouse and Led Zep’s Black Dog!)… In a careful blend of jazz fusion, rock ‘n’ roll and world music that he’s the only master of, John McLaughlin’s and Paco de Lucia’s former accomplice (no one has forgotten their famous Friday Night In San Francisco from 1981) makes his art shine brightly. It’s as impressive as always. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Hi-Res
The tortured artist, the virtuoso overshadowing the composer, all of this is behind him. Now 63 years old, Al Di Meola presents Opus, a first in many respects. Probably annoyed to be seen as nothing else than an artificer on the guitar, the American from Jersey City wants to remind everyone that he’s also a top-tier composer. An ambition he combines with a new personal situation. “This album marks a new era in my life, explains he who topped the charts in 1980 with Friday Night in San Francisco in a trio with his colleagues Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin. For the first time in my life, I have written music being happy! Until now I’ve always been this cliché of the tortured artist who can only write in a very tense context… But now, I’m in a wonderful relationship with my wife, I have a baby girl and a beautiful family that inspire me every day. I believe it shows in my music.” And Opus indeed exudes serenity. In the richness of its sound, in the multiple colours of melodies, but also in the spaces and silences he inserts in his music, Al Di Meola sculpts simple and beautiful music, in which no filler is ever present. Smooth but not plain, here is an album that will delight his most faithful fans. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz
