Consequence Of Chaos
On "Consequence Of Chaos", the legendary guitar hero and composer Al Di Meola delivers a searing, high caliber recording brimming with colorful and complex arrangements. Di Meola's fifth Telarc album offers a contemporary set of fifteen original, genre-blurring compositions. While Di Meola has sold more that six million records (including three gold albums) and won countless guitar awards in his prolific career, the jazz fusion pioneer has done something even more important in the process: he's continued to push himself and his music forward. "This is really a new and refreshing period for me," says Di Meola. "This recording marks my return to playing solid-body electric guitar in the context of modern concepts and composition. I love the energy and the fact that I have reconnected to my first love." Di Meola's restlessly creative spirit is joined on "Consequence Of Chaos" by a stellar group of supporting players. Rounding out the core team are keyboardist Mario Parmisano, drummer/percussionist Ernie Adams and percussionist Gumbi Ortiz. The roster of special guests includes pianist Chick Corea, drummer Steve Gadd, keyboardist Barry Miles, bassists John Patitucci and Victor Miranda, and percussionist Kornel Horvath.
