As artists, we expose our hearts to the world, we tap into the depths of our emotions and portray them through music.” — Frank Gambale

Frank Gambale on guitar

One of the elite guitarists in modern jazz, Frank Gambale continues to raise the bar for a generation of aspiring six-stringers with his unsurpassed fretboard facility. Gambale is simply one of the greatest guitarists walking the planet today, a bona fide guitar hero who never fails to astound aficionados with his signature sweep picking prowess. His uncanny ability to blow fluently and unerringly over the most labyrinthine changes has earned him countless gigs and dozens of recordings over the past 20-plus years, as a valued sideman and leader in his own right.

From his earliest days with the Chick Corea Elektric Band in the mid ’80s to his more recent work with Vital Information, Billy Cobham and the all-star GHS power trio (with bassist Stu Hamm and drummer Steve Smith), the Australian-born guitarist has set a new standard of excellence with a combination of dazzling technique, inherent melodicism and soulful expression.
