All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Talk about ambitious. This two-LP set finds guitarist Al di Meola performing with his quintet of the time featuring keyboardist Philippe Saisse, with studio musicians, solo, in a reunion with pianist Chick Corea, singing a love song, and welcoming veteran Les Paul for a version of "Spanish Eyes." Most of the music works quite well and it shows that di Meola best-known for his speedy rock-oriented solos is a surprisingly well-rounded and versatile musician.

    Splendido Hotel is a must have

    Al Dimeola blazed the trail for todays guitar virtuosos. He was the original speed demon and with much acclaim, Al kicked the bar up for how all future guitarist's would be rated. With this release you get dazzling speed mixed with lush melodies rich in texture and content.
