Legendary guitar virtuoso Al Di Meola's latest outing Pursuit of Radical Rhapsody is out March 15 on Telarc International, a division of Concord Music Group.
Working with accordionist Fausto Beccalossi, second guitarist Kevin Seddiki, bassist Victor Miranda, drummer Peter Kazsas and percussionist Gumbi Ortiz, Di Meola has created a collection of 15 entrancing tracks that highlight his unparalleled technique on both acoustic and electric guitar. Percussionist Mino Cinelu, Hungary's Sturcz String Quartet and former Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine also appear on the album.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
