Al Di Meola's career started in 1974 when Chick Corea called him to be the guitarist for his band "Return to Forever" the premier fusion band of the 70ies. His breath-taking technique and virtuosic guitar work enabled him to succesfully launch his solo-career in 1976 after "Return to Forever" disbanded starting out with the landmark album "Land of the Midnight Sun". Twenty-One recordings among them the award-winning "Friday Night In San Francisco" (w/ John McLaughlin and Paco De Lucia) which alone sold more than 2 million copies countless awards and six million sold albums later, Al Di Meola can be counted among the most prominent virtuosos in the contemporary instrumental jazz field.
