"Electric Rendezvous", DiMeola's fifth CBS recording, features heavy keyboard contributions from Jan Hammer, as well as the usual fiery playing by the New York based guitarist. "Electric Rendezvous", in addition to offering the explosive sound of DiMeola's amped-up black Les Paul, sports several acoustic numbers, including a duet with Paco De Lucia on "Passion, Grace and Fire". There is plenty of interchange between DiMeola and super synthesist Jan Hammer on tracks such as "God Bird Change" and the Hammer-composed "Crusin'". This lesser-known effort is strongly recommended to fans of rock inflected jazz guitar and any Jan Hammer supporter.
