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.
