Jazz guitarist Al DiMeola is coming to Harris Center on September 14.
Al DiMeola has celebrated a career that has spanned four decades and earned him critical accolades, three gold albums and more than six million in record sales worldwide.
A bona fide guitar hero, perennial poll-winner, and prolific composer, he has amassed over 20 albums as a leader while collaborating on a dozen or so others with the likes of the fusion super-group Return to Forever (with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White), the celebrated acoustic Guitar Trio featuring fellow virtuosos John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia, and the Rite of Strings trio with bassist Clarke and violinist Jean-Luc Ponty.
And while his dazzling technique on both acoustic and electric guitars has afforded him regal status among the hordes of fretboard fanatics who regularly flock to his concerts, the depth of Di Meola’s writing along with the soulfulness and the inherent lyricism of his guitaristic expression have won him legions of fans worldwide beyond the guitar aficionado set.
During a 40-plus year career marked by hugely influential recordings and worldwide tours, Di Meola has regenerated the jazz idiom three times over while dedicating himself to his art. And at age 60, this guitar hero seems inspired to begin a new chapter in his career with the release of Elysium.
This concert celebrates the 40th anniversary of his groundbreaking album, ‘Elegant Gypsy’.
