Legendary guitarist Frank Gambale bares his soul on an inspired collection of songs with his soulmate, Boca
“Soulmine” out now
Palm Springs, CA (07 August 2012): When something emerges from the soul of an artist, it’s honest, personal and meaningful. It is more than a passion project. For Grammy winning guitar innovator Frank Gambale, “Soulmine” is a soul-realized endeavor that has ruminated in his consciousness for 30 years. The musician jazz giant Chick Corea called “one of the most incredible guitarists on the planet” found the missing piece when he met and married his soulmate, Boca. She provides the sultry vocals and together the pair wrote and produced the ten-song collection of jazzy adult pop tunes that was released today on his Wombat Records label.
“Soulmine” is garnering critical acclaim for the masterfully performed, well-crafted songs served in a fresh blend of contemporary jazz, sophisticated pop, soulful R&B and progressive rock. The sensual first single, “Forbidden Kiss,” a scorching Latin-tinged pop-rocker for which award winning director Nigel Dick (Sheryl Crow, Guns ‘n Roses, Britney Spears, Oasis, Cher) shot an enticing video is one of the most added tracks at radio stations across the globe. The album boasts a gifted supporting cast that includes 5-time Grammy winning bassist Victor Wooten and organist Brian Auger.
In addition to promoting “Soulmine,” Gambale will be quite busy this summer. On June 19th, he along with his Return To Foreverband mates – Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White and Jean-Luc Ponty – will release a new triple disc album entitled “The Mothership Returns,” a live recording and DVD from Eagle Rock Entertainment. His new Play Along Tracks website is certain to be a popular destination for guitarists yearning to learn from the artist that pioneered and popularized a revolutionary guitar playing technique, Sweep Picking Technique (Sweeping), and an inventive new tuning called Gambale Tuning. This fall, Gambale will unveil a new interactive website devoted to Sweep Picking and other informative tutorials and webinars for guitarists seeking to study with the imaginative guitar master. A respected author, educator and clinician, Gambale is also putting the finishing touches on another instructional book that will premiere on his forthcoming website.
