Al Di Meola, the Jersey-born virtuoso guitarist who starred in the fusion supergroup Return to Forever, has bounced back and forth between acoustic and electric music throughout his career. For his latest, Consequence of Chaos, Di Meola mixes electric-guitar workouts with some acoustic numbers. The album is a mixture of funk, fusion and world music, and Di Meola has his well-known imprint all over each song. Drummer Steve Gadd is a special guest, as is Di Meola’s old Return to Forever bandmate Chick Corea.
