With THE LIGHT BEYOND, Frank Gambale, Stuart Hamm, and Steve Smith pick up where they left off on their first release, SHOW ME WHAT YOU CAN DO. Aside from the usual bouts of chops-driven mania, LIGHT is tempered with a slightly gentler edge overall. More advanced planning and the participants’ greater experience as a unit has yielded works of more intense harmonic complexity and musicality. Make no mistake, however, as these fusion giants are perfectly capable of pushing the limits of their instruments at any given moment.

Recorded at Neverland Studio, Marin County, California from February 11-20, 2000. Includes liner notes by Josef Woodard.
