I found tonight’s video while doing some late night browsing. It’s a concert recorded in 1992 in Sevilla, Spain by the guitar legends listed below. It’s a mind-blowing collection of jazz fusion talent that goes for about an hour and a half. As just a little teaser, I had the honor of playing bass with one of the featured artists, however, I will not reveal which one. Check out Dom di Piazza’s bass guitar work with John McLaughlin on Que Alegra. He’s one of my all time favs. Enjoy!

And for the wine to accompany, I suggest a 2012 Saint-Amant Cotes du Rhine La Borry Blanc ($15.00). Saint-Amant is one of my favorite French vineyards and I make it a habit to jump on a case of every one of their offerings regardless of whether it’s a red, white, or rose, although I’ve never seen the latter. The wine is a pale green-yellow with aromas of peaches, citrus, and honeysuckle. The palate follows with yellow plums and peaches touched with lemons and limes. Very nice minerality and acidity. Perfect for some great guitar and a warm summer evening.
