Al Di Meola Plans New Live Album, Tour

Guitarist Al Di Meola will be launching a national tour and releasing a new album in early 2009 with his new project, Al Di Meola and World Sinfonia. Joining a handpicked group of master musicians for both the tour and album, Di Meola makes a surprising turn into the romantic, producing a collection of moving tango-flavored melodies. Their work is on display on La Melodia Live In Milano, available in America on January 8, just days before the start of the tour. The album features two songs by tango master Astor

Piazzolla, as well as one each from Ennio Morricone and Andrea Parodi, and four by Di Meola himself.
