Al Di Meola - Morocco Fantasia, album review

Live Then Recent Now

This is a recent release of a 2011 DVD of a 2009 live concert at Mawazine Festival in Rabat, Morocco. It features: Al Di Meola (guitar), Peo Alfonsi (2nd guitar), Fausto Beccalossie (accordion), Gumbo Ortiz (percussion), Victor Miranda (bass), Peter Kaszas (drums), and with special guests from Morocco, Said Chraibi (oud), Abdellah Meri (violin) and Tari Ben Ali (percussion).

It is stunning. The interplay in particular between Meola’s guitar and Beccalossie’s accordion is mesmerising, but the whole is glorious. It really is as simple as this.
