Frank Gambale

"Thunder From Down Under"

The Story
"Thunder From Down Under" was Frank Gambale's first album recorded with a major label. Gambale features some noted invited guests such as keyboard giant Chick Corea, drummer Vinnie Coliauta, drummer Greg Bissonette, legendary studio bassist Abe Laboriel and others. The CD, while not all instrumental (three vocal numbers, and a few 'voice as instrument' treatments), includes some incredible guitar performances on tracks such as "Leave Ozone Alone", the insistant "Humid Beings" and "Samba Di Somewhere", a confident piece featuring Corea on Rhodes piano. A few of the pieces display a Brazilian influence, such as "The Land Of Nowhere" and "Obrigado Fukuoka". Vocal tracks aside, an important fusion piece.
