Solo Album On Double LP!
earMUSIC is proud to announce the worldwide signing of Al Di Meola - the
brilliant, virtuosic multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, who is
considered to be one of the most innovative musicians and a living legend.
Al Di Meola is a pioneer of blending world music, rock and jazz. His ongoing
fascination for complex rhythmic syncopation, combined with provocative lyrical
melodies and sophisticated harmony, has been the heart of his music throughout a
celebrated career that has spanned over four decades.
The Grammy award winner achieved worldwide fame for both, being a solo artist
and for his collaborations with Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page, Stevie Wonder, Chick
Corea, Paco De Lucia, John McLaughlin, Jean-Luc Ponty, Stanley Clarke, Luciano
Pavarotti, Paul Simon, Phil Collins, Santana, Steve Winwood, Herbie Hancock, and
many more. Al Di Meola holds the highest amount of Guitar awards in different
categories from Guitar Player magazine (US).
With a curriculum vitae rich of exciting musical moments and incredible works,
Al Di Meola is still challenging himself pushing his music towards new
boundaries but with a more relaxed way to see things. Over the last few years he
has in fact literally started all over, reinventing himself in both, his private
life and music.
"With OPUS I wanted to further my compositional skills as I think that the
evolution of this part of my persona has labelled me more composer/guitarist
than guitarist/composer" - says Di Meola – "at the same time this record
also marks a new era in my life. For the first time in my life, I have written
music being happy, I’m in a wonderful relationship with my wife, I have a baby
girl and a beautiful family that inspires me every day. I believe it shows in
