Rams Head Promotions announces Al Di Meola at Maryland Hall for Creative Arts in Annapolis, Maryland on Tuesday, August 30th. Tickets on sale Thursday, June 2nd at 10am.
A bona fide guitar hero, Al Di Meola has been recognized internationally over the past four decades as virtuoso of the highest order. 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 with the likes of the fusion supergroup 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 fret-board aficionados, the depth of Di Meola’s writing along with the soulfulness and his inherent lyricism of his guitaristic expression have won him legions of fans worldwide.
During a 40-plus year career marked by hugely influential recordings and worldwide tours, Al 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 his latest release, Elysium.
