“World Sinfonia” was originally released in 1991 and is 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. The centrepiece of this record, arguably, remains the 12-minute reinterpretation of the 1975 Return To Forever classic ‘No Mystery’ – a song that gains a whole new dimension when played in an all-acoustic setting.
