He has been known throughout the world for the past two and a half decades as one of the most prominent virtuosos in the contemporary instrumental jazz field.

Al Di Meola's highly celebrated career has spanned a wide range of emotions into a unique style embodying the artists world inspired influences. From the velocity and heat of his early solo efforts to the challenge and triumph of the “Di Meola / McLaughlin / De Lucia (Guitar Trio)”, from the Brazilian explorations of “Cielo e Terra” and “Soaring Through A Dream” to the global romanticism and Tango inflection of Al's acoustic group “World Synfonia” (self titled debut) and the 2nd “World Sinfonia” recording Heart of the Immigrants. From the beginning of his solo career, where records like “Land of the Midnight Sun”, “Elegant Gypsy” and “Casino”, were amongst the highest selling records of any instrumental artist at that time. Al Di Meola continues to make, with respect, startling achievements in music pioneering while the decline of U.S. radio continues to elude most interesting contemporary music.
