I remember watching Frank Gambale play at a Chic Corea concert while
attending the annual Concord Jazz Festival in 1985. I was amazed with
his lightning quick fingers and his powerful sweeping guitar lines.
Corea was always at his rocking fusion best when he played with great
guitar players like DiMeola and Gambale.
Coming to Your Senses seems as though it is a self-imposed
wake up call for the dynamo Gambale. With fluid and focused guitar
playing, Frank blows his way through 10 tracks with seamless ease.
Each track offers a different taste of fusion ‚lan drawing from an
endless well of influences, styles and genres.
If it is variety your ears hunger for, this CD will be your cup of
tea. While the ever-important production values are exceptional throughout
this recording, Gambales playing is tight and clean as a whistle,
never leaving a note hanging out there to get stale. He continually
infuses new and fresh ideas into each track. Just as a heart pumps
after a long rigorous run, its full bore at all times for this man.
Simply saidthis album offers instrumental guitar rock-fusion at its very best.
