Gambale, Hamm & Smith
"GHS 3" reunites Frank Gambale, Stu Hamm and Steve Smith for the thrid time. Of course, Gambale is in fine form once again, shredding up his fretboard on a number of occasions. Bill Milkowski states in the liner notes, ""GHS 3" features the trio's most ambitious writing yet, along with all the sparks and pyrotechnics we've come to expect from these three formidable players. The opening track, "All In Your Head", is a quintessential high-energy jazz rock burner powered by Smith's muscular, crisp backbeats and anchored by Hamm's mighty groove. Gambale's acrobatic solo here is simply not to be believed. The somber "November" is Hamm's virtuosic bass showcase, while "Culture Club" is Smith's drum solo piece. The astounding closer, Gambale's "The Challenger", is an intervallic obstacle course that Smith calls the hardest piece that I've ever played."
