      Easy listening

      The album "The Guitar Trio" features the three musicians John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola and Paco De Lucia. It was released in 1996 and was their first get together in 13 years, all three incredibly talented guitar players get together to produce a blend of styles which has an emphasis on Spanish classical.. undoubtedly down to Paco De Lucia.

      The intricate jazzy guitar playing is bliss to hear, each track is written at a superb pace, managing to speed along at a seemingly unhuman pace and then calming down for some small touches of brilliance, the first few times you listen to it - you can never be sure of where a speedy guitar solo is going to come in.

      For anyone with a love for either Spanish music or guitar jazz albums then this a definite must, it's an album made by 3 superbly talented musicians if not some of the best too, the downside however for me is that I can only bare so many instrumental tracks in a row without any singing whatsoever and I guess that's why I'd be more entertained by a band like Puerto Flamenco, who provide the whole package.

      1. La Estiba (Paco de Lucía) - 5:51
      2. Beyond the Mirage (Al Di Meola) - 6:10
      3. Midsummer Night (John McLaughlin) - 4:36
      4. Manha de Carnaval (Luiz Bonfá/Antônio Maria) - 6:11
      5. Letter from India (John McLaughlin) - 3:54
      6. Espiritu (Al Di Meola) - 5:30
      7. Le Monastère dans les Montagnes (John McLaughlin) - 6:15
      8. Azzura (Al Di Meola) - 7:58
      9. Cardeosa (Paco de Lucía) - 6:36
