Beautiful later work from guitarist John McLaughlin – a record that moves heavily into a Brazilian-inspired vibe – not necessarily in the actual style of the music, but more in the sunny spirit that embraces the whole session! The album was recorded in Paris with airy backing that includes keyboards by Katia Labeque and Francois Couturier, saxes from Francois Jeanneau, and guest guitar from PacoDeLucia – but the overall direction of the set is fiercely dominated by McLaughlin's fluid work on acoustic guitar, still standing strong here even with the electric touches in the instrumentation. Titles include "Waltz For Katia", "La Baleine", "Very Early (For Bill Evans)", "One Melody", "Belo Horizonte", and "Stardust On Your Sleeve". LP, Vinyl record album

With featured guests PacoDeLucia and Al Di Meola on guitars, Stanley Clarke on bass, Lenny White on drums, Don Alias on congas and bongos, and Al Vizzutti on trumpet. LP, Vinyl record album
A set that features Al DiMeola moving into some very dynamic territory – jamming out heavy on a mix of electric and acoustic guitars, with additional help from Paco DeLucia on acoustic at points. The instrumentation also features heavy electric piano from Jan Hammer, other keyboards from Barry Miles, bass from Anthony Jackson, and drums from Steve Gadd and Lenny White – all fusion powerhouse players who really take over the groove at times, but still leave enough room on the record for some gentler sounds from Paco and Al. Titles include "Elegant Gypsy Suite", "Flight Over Rio", "Midnight Tango", and "Race With Devil On Spanish Highway". LP, Vinyl record album
