Passion, Grace & Fire is the second album by John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola and
Paco de Lucía released in 1983. Unlike their first album "Friday Night in San
Francisco," this album consists entirely of studio recordings.
John McLaughlin is an English guitarist, bandleader and composer. His music
includes many genres of jazz and rock, which he coupled with an interest in
Indian classical music to become one of the pioneering figures in fusion. In
2010, guitarist Jeff Beck called him "the best guitarist alive." In 2003,
McLaughlin was ranked 49th in Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All
Time." After contributing to several key British groups of the early sixties and
making his first solo record, he moved to the US where he played with Tony
Williams' group Lifetime and then with Miles Davis on his landmark electric-jazz
fusion albums: In A Silent Way, Bitches Brew, A Tribute To Jack Johnson and On
Al Di Meola is an acclaimed jazz fusion and Latin jazz guitarist, composer, and
record producer. With a musical career that has spanned more than three decades,
he has become respected as one of the most influential guitarists in jazz to
date. Albums such as Friday Night In San Francisco have earned him both artistic
and commercial success with a solid fan base throughout the world. A prolific
composer and prodigious six-string talent, Di Meola has amassed over 20 albums
as a leader while collaborating on a dozen or so others.
Paco de Lucia was a Spanish flamenco guitarist, composer and producer. A leading
proponent of the New Flamenco style, he helped legitimize flamenco among the
establishment in Spain, and was one of the first flamenco guitarists to have
successfully crossed over into other genres of music such as classical and jazz.
De Lucia was noted for his fast and fluent fingerstyle runs. His collaborations
with guitarists John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola saw him gain wider popularity
outside his native Spain.
