Back to top. Get to Know Us. Amazon Payment Products. I received a non-original CD, it's a copy. I am very angry because since I went on a trip I can not return it. Great feel and sound. Al DM plays piazzolla with great sensitivity and artistry in his interpretation of Arturo's work, I love this cd! Fast service - great cd. Format: Audio CD. Virtuoso musicians of different genres often collaborate on albums for a variety of reasons, i. Rarely does such collaboration result in something memorable.
The meeting of Astor Piazzolla and Al DiMeola before the former's death resulted in a project that did. My impression of their meeting is that both men deeply admired the work of the other, but also that DiMeola approached Piazzolla in such a worshipful and respectful manner that he was mystically inspired to produce a body of incomparable work bringing the "message" of Piazzolla to the masses of fans who had never heard of him.
By combining Piazzolla compositions from other albums into one and adding a couple more, "DiMeola Plays Piazzolla" makes this work accessible and readily identifiable to his fans and thus succeeds in spreading the Piazzolla gospel. I know it works because I have introduced many to Piazzolla through DiMeola.
What an incredible album. Mellow and other-worldly, it will transport you to a dreamy world far from your everyday concerns. From the ethereal sounds of DiMeola's guitar to the sepulchral tones of Dino Saluzzi's bandoneon you will find yourself transfixed by the beauty of this music, ever evocative of the melancholy of the Buenos Aires tango milieu. My favorites are the somber "Oblivion", "Cafe ", "Nightclub ", and "Bordel " featuring some intricate bandoneon work , and "Tango Suite", the magnum opus which I think is the only one in which Piazzolla was directly involved.
It is said that the Argentine writer Borges smiled down on Piazzolla and approved of his work. I think that both of them must now be smiling down on DiMeola. This album belongs in any serious music lover's collection. There are 20 customer reviews and 21 customer ratings. See all 20 customer reviews. Write a customer review.
