The Faena Jazz Series is honored to open our fifth season with guitar hero Al Di Meola in an intimate acoustic show.. Di Meola needs no introduction – he is well-known as one of the world’s greatest musicians and a virtuoso of the highest order. A prolific composer and prodigious six-string talent, Di Meola has amassed over 20 albums as a leader while collaborating on a dozen or so others with the likes of the fusion supergroup Return To Forever (with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White), a celebrated acoustic guitar trio featuring fellow virtuosos John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia, and the Rite of Strings trio with bassist Clarke and violinist Jean-Luc Ponty. And while his dazzling technique on both acoustic and electric guitars has afforded him regal status among the hordes of guitar lovers who regularly flock to his concerts, the depth of Di Meola's compositions along with the soulfulness and inherent lyricism of his musical expression have won him legions of fans worldwide.
Look for the following at the show.
