Concert: Frank Gambale at the Baked Potato

I went to the Baked Potato on Saturday night, and I would have posted this review earlier, if it wasn't for the passing of John on that day. I only found out the next day before I had time to write this review, and the sudden realization that he died as this concert just started quite weirded me out. I almost felt guilty for having fun while a dear friend was in his last minutes on his death bed. All the more tragic as we were chatting about overcode before the show started.

But life goes on, as painful as it is for now, and I'll now give a quick review of this special evening, as it was a very good concert after all.

In other musical news, I may go back to the Baked Potato again over the next few weeks. Always good stuff happening there. More importantly, I want to get back into recording and get started on a new song that I intend to dedicate to John. I have some ideas that I am working on, hopefully this will come to fruition in the next few days or weeks.

  1. california:
    I loved California since the first time I came here a few years ago, so it's only natural that it ended up in my interests.
  2. europe:
    That's where I am from. It's also a very interesting place to visit, and to live.
  3. guitars:
    That much should be obvious to anybody following my LJ. I currently own 3 guitars, plus one bass guitar. And a consequential amount of related gear.
  4. jazz fusion:
    My interest in that kind of music has grown quickly after I discovered a lot of talented musicians in that genre, and my addiction to the jazz club that is the Baked Potato in L.A. is only proof of that.
  5. lord of the rings:
    I liked the movies. Still haven't got to read the novels in full though.
  6. mp3s:
    Hah. How else would I discover all the weird shit I listen to?
  7. philosophy:
    The quest for wisdom should be natural and never-ending, methinks.
  8. rhapsody:
    By this keyword, I actually mean the Italian symphonic-power-speed-hollywood-metal band of the name. Cheesy beyond all comprehension.
  9. southern california:
    Well, I live in L.A., so there.
  10. the simpsons:
    Loved the series ever since I was a kid watching the French version of the show. Still watching it religiously to this day, even though it declined significantly, but I am now familiar enough with the original version to enter into quote battles.
