Passion, Grace & Fire
Just a few short years after they recorded their seminal, award-winning trio album "Friday Night In San Francisco", John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola and Paco De Lucia reunited for another 'duel' on record of incredible acoustic guitar playing - "Passion, Grace & Fire". In the final analysis, the end result is a stand-off, as all three guitarists showcase ferocious, lightning quick riffs and passionate rhythm playing in support of each other. The acoustic guitar summit is a great companion CD to their first recording -- with fiery playing alternating with moments of grace and beauty.
