Jazz - flamenco fusion

I must admit to a taste for flamenco guitar, it's such emotional music. The master flamencoist (IMHO), Paco de Lucia, has such emotions and can play them. Combined with fusionist Al Di Meola's mastery of free form, the result is classic.

I've never heard this recording before, though the tune Mediterranean Sundance, I have known for a long time. Written by Al Di Meola it's from the album Elegant Gypsy (1977).

Mediterranean Sundance germany '81


I posted another version ages ago, with Al, Paco and John McLaughlin. And yet another with Paco and Larry Coryell, but the entertainment police at YouTube saw fit to remove that one.
