  Thinking Out Loud

NOTE! THIS ALBUM IS ONLY AVAILABLE AS MP3.
Gambale's last JVC release. This album features him playing mostly a hollow body jazz guitar. Hearing Gambale playing clean with every note clear as a bell is a real treat. George Benson heard this album and went to see him perform during his tour in Sydney. George raved about the show and pronounced Gambale as the "Master of Sweeping". Classic tunes such as "Magritte", "No-Neck Louie" and "The Avengers Suite", some of his best writing ever, plus distorted electric guitar on the tune "My Little Viper" much to our delight. Features an all-star lineup including Dave Weckl, Alphonso Johnson, Brian Auger, David Goldblatt, Otmaro Ruiz and others.

  Passages

*****NOTE: THIS ALBUM IS ONLY AVAILABLE AS MP3.
Passages is regarded as Gambale's best overall album. Strong songs and strong performances by the whole all-star lineup. Otmaro Ruiz, the sensational keyboardist from Caracas, Venezuela is a perfect match for Gambale. The rhythm section is the firepower of Alphonso Johnson ( bass ), and Walfredo Reyes Jr. ( drums ). A classic album with classic songs like "Passages", "Little Charmer" and "6.8 Shaker".

Gambale's sweep picking technique is very evident even on this early recording. A must for any serious Gambale collector. 5 Stars *****
