Here is the official version of DiMarzio's interview with Paul Gilbert that I first posted last week. NOTE: I pulled that post at DiMarzio's request since the video was unfinished, and had been published on YouTube by mistake.
CAB's new album THEATRE DE MARIONNETTES has been released in India. The album features Bunny Brunel on bass, Tony MacApline on guitar, Virgil Donati on drums, plus three keyboardists - Patrice Rushen, Brian Auger, and special guest Chick Corea. Two of the album's tracks were written by Indian composer/producer Sandeep Chowta. It appears the album has only been released in India thus far - check out this Facebook group for more info including store locations where the album can be purchased. If I find an online retailer offering the album I'll post an update.
12/14/08: I've added some full-size pics of the CD packaging above.
