Review: This is an amazing disc. Di Meola's playing is stellar throughout and constantly shifting through genres, tempos, time signatures and volumes, yet he holds every composition together in a fluid style. Each track has him jamming with a variety of instruments and the results are awe-inspiring. I can only tell you how each track starts and ends. You can count on several shifts in between on every track
