"Splendido Hotel", which was originally a double album on vinyl, features eleven DiMeola cuts, many of which showcase the more reflective, soulful side of his playing. Chick Corea makes a guest appearance on several numbers, and even the legendary Les Paul contribtues guitar to Bert Kaempert's "Spanish Eyes". Most of the music works very well and it shows that DiMeola (renowned for his blindingly fast fusion solos) is unmistakably a well-rounded and versatile musician. Highlights on "Splendido Hotel" include "Alien Chase On Arabian Desert" and "Dinner Music Of The Gods".
