Casino is a 1978 album by Latin jazz fusion guitarist Al Di Meola. Señor Mouse" (Chick Corea) – 7:21. Fantasia Suite for Two Guitars" (Al Di Meola) – 5:11. Casino" (Al Di Meola) – 9:29. Al Di Meola: Guitars, mandolin, percussion, hand claps. Anthony Jackson: Bass guitar.
Featuring a core band of Steve Gadd, Anthony Jackson, and Barry Miles (whom di Meola came up with before the guitarist was invited to join Return to Forever), the playing is sharp and fiery, matching the youthful intensity of the leader. Di Meola is a good composer in the fusion idiom, and the four original compositions on Casino, although clearly bearing the mark of Chick Corea's influence, are strong. His "Fantasia Suite for Two Guitars," featuring di Meola accompanying himself via multi-tracking, is beautiful and dramatic, and hints at the guitarist's later all-acoustic.
