    Dear music- and Hifi- enthusiast! Please do listen to the Record "Coloring The Leaves" from Ralf Illenberger und Martin Kolbe. It was published '79. Especially "Orient Blue" reminds me, no i would confuse it with the songs of the record of Illenberger and Kolbe. Apart from the spanish vibes, 'Laughlins 'Meolas and 'Lucias Album could be put in a compilation about the same dreamy walsy guitar music, that i really enjoy especially on rainy summer evenings. It might be your mighty express for the missing spice for the atmosphere you would wish for.

      Amazing album of three guitar giants. Meola bit "rockin". Great record for every fun of fine music. My wife like it too much after the first listening. Sound is excellent with clearly and detailed resolution of their guitar strings types. Thin "paper" 80´s pressing is bad, but luckily my is correct. Easily recommended.

        To hear the best three acoustic guitarrist of the world is one listening experience worth having. I think DeLucia, DiMeola & McLaughlin deserves the same credit on this masterpiece. Orient Suite, gives a highlight to this CD, but Chiquito and Sichia are true flamenco jewels (you have to listen to the two of them together), and Passion, Grace & Fire, gets an standing ovation, althought I prefer the 1978's Electric Rendevous version with just Paco de Lucia.
