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.
With the opening tones and train-like groove of "Katahdin," it is evident that the music here is of a higher plane than most fusion. Gambale, along with his signature soloing style, turns in some of the most sonically colorful work of his career. Smith, too, is at the top of his game, pulling off death defying licks and complex time grooves with both crystal precision and a deep foundation. Anchoring it all is Hamm, long known as a rock monster with Joe Satriani, who pulls off the masterful solo piece "Nostalgia." Other intriguing works include Gambale's "Yin" and "Yang," the thundering "Lumpy's Lament," and the soaring closer, "Fugitive Aspirations."
