This acoustic guitar duo concert features one of the great names in jazz – Al Di Meola. Tonight’s concert with Peo Alfonsi will feature compositions from Al Di Meola, Lennon & McCartney and the Argentinian tango music composer, Astor Piazzolla.
Guitarist Al Di Meola is one of pioneers of jazz fusion and is well known for his Latin-inspired jazz fusion albums. As a member of Chic Corea’s band Return to Forever he helped to push the limits of jazz fusion in the 1970s. His 1981 album with John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia, Friday Night in San Francisco, sold over two million copies and is regarded as one of the most influential acoustic guitar albums ever.
Peo Alfonsi has worked extensively with Al Di Meola on several projects and collaborated with musicians such as Pat Metheny, Kenny Wheeler, Trilok Gurtu and Marc Ribo.
