Frank Gambale’s Acoustic Improvisation DVD follows the success of his first acoustic trio recording, Natural High. This video features his trio, Natural High Live, with Otmaro Ruiz on piano, Alain Caron on bass, and Frank on acoustic guitar. After blowing through seven jaw-dropping performances with his world-class band, Frank sits down for a candid one-on-one session about jazz improvisation. Using the changes to All the Things You Are as a foundation, Frank teaches a series of ideas for improvising over classic ii-V progressions using 3rds and 7ths, chord extensions, Phrygian, super Locrian, and diminished ideas. Franks incorporates rhythmic and melodic motifs and much, much more. As a special added feature, all the music examples and lead sheets for all the songs performed on the DVD are included as printable PDF files.
