Elegant Gypsy
Fusion

Elegant Gypsy  (1977)
Elegant Gypsy is the second album by Al Di Meola, released in 1977. It was a follow-up album to Di Meola's debut release, Land of the Midnight Sun. The distinctive music in the album is a speedy fusion of jazz and rock, with lightning-fast guitar riffs intermixed with lyrical acoustical passages. The songs include explorations of Latin music themes, including acoustic genres like flamenco. Elegant Gypsy won an annual award for Best Guitar Album in Guitar Player Magazine.
Al Di Meola was the best fusion guitarist on the planet at the time of this release. "Elegant Gypsy" is unbelievably fresh sounding yet came out over thirty years ago. The production is truly top notch, Al's playing is at its best, and the music is very accessible right from the opening seconds of the very first track.
