"Mr. Gambale seems kind and unpretentious, but I found this DVD unexciting. It's divided into two halves: a concert with his trio, and a set of about twenty improvisation exercises. I found his compositions rather dull, perhaps because all his melodies are unending strings of eighth notes. And the improvisation exercises were rudimentary to anyone who knows a bit of jazz, while at the same time they might be hard to understand for anyone who doesn't.
Personally, I'm really digging the Jody Fisher jazz guitar method books right now, and would recommend those to people curious about jazz improvisation. The first in the series is this one, I think:
