时间: Fri Aug 12 11:15:36 2005
今天听了这张专辑,呼木及他能弹成这样真的好恐怖阿 Orz史上最强吉他3重奏现场-Friday night in San Francisco
英文名称︰Friday Night In San Francisco
艺 术 家︰ Paco De Lucia, Al Di Meola, John Mclaughlin
CBS SONY公司用SBM技术录制的发烧碟“Friday Night in San Francisco"，
相信大部分音乐发烧朋友，都已拥有这张旧版专辑。什么旧版？ 所指是在1981年CBS Columbia推出的编号CD37152版本。那么，这又是什 么版本呢？这是Columbia在1997年用20bit remastered的较新版。 听过Columbia81年出版的朋友，都相信会公认此为天碟，除了对这三位吉他高手出神入化的技巧演奏佩服得五体投地外，其现场录音也出奇的叫好。所以这20bit remastered新版，也当然能令其重播效果推上更高境界。
既然这是个翻新版，也无须多费唇舌去再介绍内容。相信大家对其第 一首MediterraneanSundance/Rio Ancho必留下深刻印象，偕因AL DI Meola 和paco de lucia 竟能弹吉他到如此高速境界，尤其是AL DI Meola。也许，大 家也知道这曲是改编自AL DI Meola的Mediterranean Sundance1977年作品及 PACO DE Lucia的Rioancho（作品年分不详）。自己身为吉他发烧友，当然后来也买了这俩个原版的CD，不过，在听后，虽然发觉其原装版充满原作及演奏 者个人风格，我个人还是比较喜欢前者的改编合奏版，尤其是这两大吉他高手以超高速弹奏斗快精彩场面，这种现场气氛及声势，是原装版望尘莫及的。您听后又感觉如何呢？ 从吉他演奏的角度讲，我已经被两位大师的演奏震呆了。
1. 这是一张1980年在美国三藩市The Warfield Theatre举行的吉他三重奏演会现场录音演奏专辑。不要以为只有五首乐曲就不划算，其实每首乐曲的时间都很长，第一首的MEDITERRANEAN SUNDANCE就超过11分鐘了﹗
2. 要注意一下三位吉他手在CD中的演奏位置。例如第一首MEDITERRANEAN SUNDANCE Al Di Meola在右边弹他的Ovation Steel string acoustic guitar，而在左边弹西班牙Nylon string acoustic guitar的则是Paco De Lucia。三位不同国藉的吉他大师【Al Di Meola→美国；John Mclaughlin→ 英国； Paco De Lucia→ 西班牙】的弹奏手法也是欣赏重点，尤其在伴奏时，Paco使用的Flamingo手法，就跟弹Jazz出身的Al及John有著很明显的不同。此外 Paco弹奏时是以手指拨弦的，跟Al以pick弹奏的风格形成很强烈的对比。第一首MEDITERRANEAN SUNDANCE就是其中的典范。
Audio CD (September 7, 1999)
Please Note: Requires SACD-compatible hardware
Original Release Date: 1993
Number of Discs: 1
Format: Super Audio CD - DSD, Live
光看这张专辑的演出阵容就值得爵士乐迷将之奉为必修宝典－Al Di Meola、John McLaughlin、Paco de Lucia，全是近代爵士吉他天王中的天王。John McLaughlin的"Extrapolation"专辑甚至还荣获绝是权威评鑑企鹅爵士评鑑五颗星满分成绩。Al Di Meola也是被视作新生代乐手中最具潜力的即兴演奏家之ㄧ，极力融合创新开发观念和精湛演奏技巧的抢眼表现，即可作为明显佐证。至於Paco de Lucia则是当今佛朗名哥(Flamenco)吉他界的第一把交椅，他那自若游移於六根弦间、目眩神迷的弹奏指法，令人嘆为观止。
这三位世纪吉他手在1980年12月5日，於旧金山The Warfield剧场做了一场不插电吉他的世纪合奏。从一开场的"Mediterranean Sundance/Rio Ancho"开始，三人同时互飆指法并且又搭配默契十足地丢出一篇瑰丽的佛朗明哥织锦；紧接著演出的Chick Corea名曲"Short Tales of the Black Forest"在中段部分，三人幽默又不著痕迹地即兴偷渡"顽皮豹"主题曲，令闻者不禁莞尔一笑。整张专辑在经由重新整理制作之后，以更完美乾净的音效重现了当晚的现场气氛。淋漓尽现三位爵士吉他手惊人魄力的这张现场实况专辑，绝对是20世纪吉他经典宝藏！

John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola, Paco DeLucia: Friday Night in San Francisco
It was a historic occasion. The appearance of John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola, and Paco DeLucia at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre one Friday night in 1981 was a musical event that could be compared to the Benny Goodman Band's performance at Carnegie Hall in 1938. The Guitar Trio did for the acoustic guitar what Goodman had done for jazz. The acoustic guitar had gone commercial.
In 1979 and 1980, McLaughlin and de Lucia had actually toured Europe with Larry Coryell. McLaughlin tried to release a recording of this group but Columbia would have none of it, claiming Coryell was not a big enough name. Coryell had some personal problems at the time that did not help either. (The video Meeting of the Spirits features this version of the Trio, and it also appears on one cut on DeLucia's album Castro Marin ). When the time came to tour America, DiMeola stepped in. His presence suddenly made the Trio commercial. At any rate, Friday Night in San Francisco was the result.
FNSF truly caught these players' energy, amazing technique and humor to a generous degree. There is no doubt that McLaughlin is the leader (center channel gives that away), but DiMeola and DeLucia more than hold their own. DiMeola, though one of the world's greatest guitar players, lacks the emotional intensity and overall musicality to match McLaughlin or DeLucia. But the Latin influenced music of the Trio allows him to excel in a genre in which he had long dabbled. Not being a jazz player, DeLucia's improvisational work is understandably weaker than the other two. However, the music is as much in DeLucia's bag as anyone’s. The concert is full of call and response, unison playing, heavy chords (courtesy of McLaughlin), and audience screams.
The album's highlight is McLaughlin's duet with DeLucia on an Egberto Gismonti piece, "Frevo Rasgado". The beautiful melody and stunning improvisation leads to an absolutely hair-raising finale duel. (Gismonti has recorded a beautiful version of his tune on piano.) The recording's lightest moments occur during a hilarious duet version of Chick Corea’s “Short Tales of the Black Forest,” featuring McLaughin and DiMeola in which the two masters quote back and forth from various sources including Mancini’s “Pink Panther.” All three players finish the event with a studio version of McLaughlin’s “Guardian Angel.”
Friday Night in San Francisco may be considered the most influential of all live acoustic guitar albums. Though some have criticized it for its muscular tendencies, the recording certainly captures the excitement of the event itself. In a world of electric guitars, it was quite unusual to hear a crowd go absolutely ballistic over acoustic strumming. It is not so unusual today, and this record is one major reason for that.

Friday Night in San Francisco is a 1981 live album by Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucía. It was described by jazz author and critic Walter Kolosky as "a musical event that could be compared to the Benny Goodman Band's performance at Carnegie Hall in 1938 ... [it] may be considered the most influential of all live acoustic guitar albums". 
All the tracks except Guardian Angel were recorded live at The Warfield Theatre on 5 December 1980, in San Francisco; Guardian Angel was recorded at Minot Sound, in White Plains, New York.
Al Di Meola John Mc Laughlin Paco De Lucia - Friday Night In San Francisco (1981)
Loose and spontaneous, this (mainly) live album is a meeting of three of the greatest guitarists in the world for an acoustic summit the likes of which the guitar-playing community rarely sees. Broken up into three duo and two trio performances, Friday Night in San Francisco catches all three players at the peaks of their quite formidable powers. The first track features Al di Meola and Paco de Lucía teaming up for a medley of di Meola's "Mediterranean Sundance" (first recorded by the duo on di Meola's classic 1976 album Elegant Gypsy) and de Lucía's own "Rio Ancho." It is a delightful performance, full of the fire and inhuman chops that one expects from two players of this caliber. However, the two guitarists obviously have big ears, and they complement each other's solos with percussive, driving rhythm parts. There is a laid-back, humorous element to Friday Night in San Francisco as well, best witnessed in di Meola and John McLaughlin's performance of Chick Corea's "Short Tales of the Black Forest." Rapid-fire licks from the pair soon give way to atonal striking of the body of the guitar, running picks along the strings, etc. Before the farce is completed, they have played a blues and quoted the Pink Panther theme. It is funny stuff, and it serves to dispel the image of the trio, especially di Meola, as super-serious clinicians more concerned with technique than music. The other great piece of evidence against such a narrow-minded claim can be found in both the quality of the compositions featured on Friday Night in San Francisco as well as the sensitivity and dynamic variation brought to the performances. A perfect example of this is the sole studio track, a McLaughlin composition entitled "Guardian Angel" (the opening theme of which is taken straight from "Guardian Angels," a song that appears on McLaughlin's 1978 Electric Dreams album). It is a fine piece, and one that features a haunting melody as well as some of the best solos on the record. All in all, Friday Night in San Francisco is a fantastic album and one of the best entries in all of these guitarists' fine discographies. (by Daniel Gioffre)
