Mediterranean Sundance

John McLaughlin with Paco De Lucia and Al Di Meola

Di Meola, a veteran of Chick Corea’s band

Composed by Al Di Meola for his 1977 album “Elegant Gypsy,” “Mediterranean Sundance” blends flamenco and jazz stylings. Although the progression, on paper, is fairly straightforward, performing it was not. Di Meola’s picking was very quick. But De Lucia helped keep it together on the original recording, as he does in this live performance.

Personnel:

Paco De Lucia, guitar
