Christmas Eve Duet - Romero and Di Meola

What do the great jazz guitarists Hernan Romero and Al Di Meola do at home on Christmas eve? They play a little Piazzolla. Today's video captures an informal moment with these two artists playing "unplugged" in someone's home. From the gold records on display behind them, I would guess it is one of their homes and since Romero posted the video, it is probably his.

The two have a long history of collaboration with ten recordings together including Di Meola Plays Piazzolla, which belongs in every Piazzolla lover's collection. Interestingly, I believe the piece they are playing, Vuelvo al sur in today's video, has never been recorded by either of them. Perhaps this is an informal rehearsal for an upcoming recording? Let's hope so.
