Note Worker
The Story
Australian guitarist Frank Gambale's second JVC release is "Note Worker", featuring brilliantly crafted instrumental and vocal songs -- Gamable himself handling the lead vocals. Even though the overall pace of the album is not as high as some of Gambale's more frenzied releases, his blazing guitar work and flashy fire is evident on instrumental tracks such as "High 5", "Schmooze" and "Jet Rag". "Note Worker" features musicians such as Dave Weckl, Steve Smith, Kei Akagi, Steve Tavaglione and others.
