Al Di Meola - Splendido Hotel (1979)

It was Al's birthday yesterday so thought I'd get into some Di Meola magic this afternoon.
While this recording shows it's age (the keyboards especially sound dated) it's still a great record to show off his versatility. While not soulful like Carlos he's still a maestro and superb technician. I especially like his acoustic playing and would trade this any day for his manic runs along the fretboard.
