"Passages" is regarded by many fans and critics as Frank Gambale's best overall album. Strong songs and strong performances are turned in by the entire all-star lineup, which includes Otmaro Ruiz, the sensational keyboardist from Caracas, Venezuela, who is a perfect match for Gambale. The rhythm section is the firepower of Alphonso Johnson (bass), and Walfredo Reyes Jr. (drum ). "Passages" is a classic album with classic songs like the title track, "Little Charmer", "6.8 Shaker", and Gambale's instrumental cover of the Cream song "White Room". A great first album for the instrumental fan new to the music of Gambale.
