Alfred's Artist series brings the improvisational stylings of guitarist Frank Gambale to guitarists everywhere. The DVD follows the success of Gambale's first acoustic trio recording, Natural High, featuring Otmaro Ruiz on piano, Alain Caron on bass, and Gambale on acoustic guitar. After blowing through seven jaw-dropping performances with his world-class band, Gambale sits down for a candid one-on-one session about jazz improvisation, utilizing a series of ideas for improvising over classic II-V progressions using 3rds and 7ths, chord extensions, Phrygian mode, super Locrian mode, and diminished ideas. Gambale incorporates rhythmic and melodic motifs and much more. Special features include a DVD-ROM with the complete video formatted for computer or i-Pod, printable PDF files of all the songs and music examples, previews of other Frank Gambale DVDs, and a preview of Johnny A.'s DVD Taste ! Tone ! Space.

    "Music examples" as described in the printable PDF files feature was not on the DVD, otherwise an excellent DVD. The various artists and their raw talent, the setting, and the quality of music was very appreciated.
