This review is from: Friday Night In San Francisco (Audio CD)
As time goes by this may be a milestone for the acoustic jazz-guitar. Starting with the weak point; it's not that musical; three guitarists at the peak of their powers at boiling points bring millions of notes in just a few tracks.
On the other hand this is one the most sensational live-recordings ever! DiMeola is flashing and elegant in his rapid-firing playing of scals, McLaughlin is passionate, loud and angry, DeLucia is fiery and emotional in his playing.
Sound-wise (there's a Polygram-cd-version around too) this is the best one; it's remastered and has good liner-notes. Like my fellow-reviewer remarked before; this is not the complete story of that night; it's time the other solo-, duo- and trio-recordings were released too! Especially the solo-spot of DeLucia that evening was hair-raising!
