Al Di Meola

February 26. Unquestionably, it's Elegant Gypsy, jazz-rock fusion giant Al Di Meola's second solo album, that's the biggest-selling work in his catalog. Recorded when the guitarist was still a member of all-star powerhouse Return to Forever, the noodly opus was named Best Guitar Album by Guitar Player magazine and turns 40 this year. In celebration of the milestone, Di Meola, who's worked with, among others, John McLaughlin, Paco de Lucia, and Jean-Luc Ponty, takes to the road this month for a commemorative tour that takes him to the Paramount Hudson Valley for a night of unchained guitar glory. A special meet-and-greet package includes admission to sound check and a 20-minute Q&A with the maestro. (Tito Puente Jr. taps in February 4; along comes the Association on February 11.) 7pm. $40, $50, $60. Peekskill. (914) 739-0039
