Double Concerto LIVE. Marciac, France by AlDiMeola published on 2011/09/06 08:11:10 +0000 Tuesday, August 2, 2011, Marciac, France. After Paco De Lucia last year and John McLaughlin three days ago, Marciac hosts a new "Guitar Hero" with Al Di Meola, the third musketeer of a group that was successful in the 1980s. The Italian-American has nothing to envy to the other two in terms of instrumental technique. His is simply amazing and virtuosity has little equal. Where a prolific solo career and ease the crossing of cultures. Jazz rock of which he is one of the stars uncontested (he replaced Bill Connors in the group Return To Forever Chick Corea) Di Meola freely mixes of other influences, beginning with those that come from his Italian roots. Thus the merger, which does not exclude the lyricism or the Latin color, including flamenco, makes it a representative of world music. His collaboration with Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba often reaches the top.
