Gabor SzaboBacchanal ... LP
Skye, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $8.99
A wonderful album from Gabor Szabo – one with the same freely grooving, slightly-psychedelic sound that he was using on his best records for the Impulse label! Two guitars head up the quintet – those of Gabor and Jim Stewart – and they trade breezy lines throughout, grooving over slyly shifting rhythm patterns from the bass, drums, and added percussion – always with a great mix of Latin, exotic, and modal influences running through the tunes. Titles include "Bacchanal", "Three Kingfishers", "Sunshine Superman", "Some Velvet Morning", "The Divided City", and a cool cover of "Theme From the Valley of the Dolls". LP, Vinyl record album

Gabor SzaboMacho ... LP
Salvation, 1975. Very Good+ .... $5.99
A nice session by one of the most unique guitarists in jazz – all done up in a CTI style, with production and arrangements by Bob James that give the record a nice little electric finish! We always loved Gabor's guitar on his 60s recordings, and this set is one of the first to really strongly push him into the sound of the 70s – working with James, Eric Gale, and Jon Faddis to craft some soulful grooves that show that Szabo's style would keep on evolving! Includes the nice groover "Ziggidy Zag", a mellow electric jazzy with a back/forth stepping groove – plus the cuts "Macho", "Poetry Man", "Time", and "Transylvanian Boogie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Back cover has a rip in one corner.)

Gabor SzaboDreams ... CD
1968. New Copy .... Early January, 2014 (delayed)
The guitar genius of Gabor Szabo – set to magnificent arrangements by Gary McFarland! The set's one of the most sophisticated albums Szabo ever cut – and has a slow-building style that steps off of his Impulse years with a deeper, broader vision of music. By the time of the set, McFarland himself was hitting a more contemplative style in his own music – and you can hear that shift in this album as well, especially in the moodier, mellower moments. Instrumentation includes violin, cello, and French Horn – all used sparingly to augment Szabo's small combo with piano by McFarland! Titles include lots of originals – "The Fortune Teller", "Half The Day Is Night", "Galatea's Guitar", and "Lady In the Moon". CD

New Lena Horne & Gabor SzaboWatch What Happens (aka Lena & Gabor) ... LP
Buddah, 1970. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Think what you want about Lena Horne – but this is a plenty darn groovy album! Sure, Lena's style is usually a bit classy and uptown – almost so much so that we don't really dig most of her records. But here, she's working in a very groovy style – paired with the great guitarist Gabor Szabo, in a set of sweetly swinging tunes that share many touches with Gabor's grooviest sides for Impulse and Skey in the 60s! Gabor produced and arranged with Gary McFarland – and the pair really transform the sound of Lena's voice, taking her normally-poised vocals and loosening them up with a subtly funky undercurrent. Richard Tee plays some great organ on the set, in a small combo that also includes Grady Tate and Chuck Rainey – and titles include a lot of Beatles covers – like "Rocky Raccoon", "Fool On The Hill", and "In My Life" – plus the cuts "Nightwind", "Watch What Happens", and "My Mood Is You".

New Gabor SzaboGabor Szabo Live With Charles Lloyd ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1974. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little record by Gabor – one that reproduces the kind of groove he was hitting on his classic Impulse albums, a mix of tripped-out modal jazz with exotic influences, and more than a bit of soul. Gabor's reunited here with his old bandmate Charles Lloyd from Chico Hamilton years – and Charles plays flute on a remake of "Sombrero Sam", one of Szabo's nicest tunes. Anthony Ortega plays flute on a version of "Stormy", and another long track features nice keyboards by Tommy Eyre. Also includes a remake of "Spellbinder", a great little tune! LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1976. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although this one's not from Gabor's classic period on the Skye label, it does have a nice R&B fusion sound to it, and was recorded at Sigma Studios in Philly. Bunny Sigler produced, and he gives the set a 70's soul sort of sound, but Gabor's cool guitar is still out front, and keeps the tracks sharp, in a sort of pop fusion way. Cuts include the spacey "Concorde (Night Flight)", plus "Babby Rattle Snake", "Smooth Sailin", and "Keep Smilin". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1970. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in a very cool twin-guitar style that makes for an amazing sound. Both players have a hollow, warm tone to their work on the strings – stepping around a blend of soul and jazz that's nicely tripped out in a 70s Blue Thumb style. The highlight of the record is the massive track "Breezin", a sample track used by more than one group over the years – but the whole record's amazing, filled with slow, trippy grooves that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "I Remember When", "Just A Little Communication", "Amazon", "Fingers", and "Azure Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gabor SzaboFaces ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Used .... Out Of Stock
Nice one! Gabor Szabo's fluid guitar stylings are folded into a nice Wayne Henderson At-Home production from the mid 70s with a slick, thick groove, replete with strings, a brass section and some nice bckground vocals on several numbers. While we mostly know Szabo from his breezy 60s sides, his sound well matched to this more produced affair, where he's joined by Bobby Lyle and a West Coast rhythm section that lays a tight groove down for his guitar in a post CTI mode. 8 tracks in all "The Biz", "Magic Mystic Faces", "Gloomy Day", "Desiring You", "Misty Malarky Ying Yang", "Alicia", "The Last Song" and "Estate". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul DesmondSkylark ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... $13.99
A stunning 70s set from the great Paul Desmond – one that has the tremendous alto player finding an even fresher groove than before – yet all without losing any of the class and control that made him so great in the 50s and 60s! Don Sebesky arranged the set, but most of the instrumentation is nice and lean – small group modes that allow Paul's alto to soar out in the lead, often alongside some excellent guitar work from Gabor Szabo and Gene Bertoncini – the latter of whom provides accompaniment that takes us back to some of Jim Hall's music with Desmond. Bob James plays a bit of piano on the record, and rhythm is by Ron Carter on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – plus a bit of cello from George Ricci, who shades tunes in with a mighty nice sound. But as you'd guess, the main focus is on Desmond's sublime alto sax – on titles that include "Was A Sunny Day", "Take Ten", "Music For A While", and of course, "Skylark". CD

New Chico HamiltonMan From Two Worlds ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $34.99
A pivotal album for Chico – one that has him working with his hip group that included Charles Lloyd and Gabor Szabo, both of whom take Chico into a modal mode that would completely transform his sound! Lloyd's the center star on the album's version of his own "Forest Flower" – done here in "sunrise" and "sunset" passages – but it's really Chico's increasingly offbeat sense of rhythm that allows Lloyd and Szabo to develop their intense solos and searching grooves. Other titles include "Mallet Dance", "Love Song To A Baby", "Man From Two Worlds", and "Child's Play". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange and black label stereo pressing – in great shape!)

New Fareed HaqueTrance Hypothesis ... CD
Delmark, 2013. New Copy .... $11.99 15.99
Maybe the trippiest album we've ever heard from guitarist Fareed Haque – but you've probably already guessed that from the image on the cover! The set's filled with all the kind of cool sounds you'd expect – and is almost a throwback to the great run of jazz-meets Eastern-meets funk albums on Impulse, Verve, and Skye Records at the end of the 60s – as Haque's guitar comes into contact with sitar, Hammond, Fender Rhodes, tabla, and other groovy touches – in the kind of tracks that would have made Gabor Szabo and Gary McFarland plenty darn happy! Titles include "Chitlins N Chutney", "Mellow Mood", "Poonjob In The Punjab", "Srishti", "Saba", and "Down To The Root". CD

Keith JarrettNo End ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1986. New Copy 2 CDs .... $24.99 29.98
One of the coolest, most exotic albums ever cut by Keith Jarrett – a set of previously-unreleased material from the mid 80s – but with the feel of some more tripped-out jazz experiments from the late 60s! Keith plays piano, but also mixes it in with lots of work on electric guitar, bass, drums, tablas, and other percussion – all in this swirling blend that almost has the evocative feel of some of Gabor Szabo's music for the Impulse and Skye labels from decades before – but with a looser quality, too. Given that most of Jarrett's piano improvisations of the period were often a bit dark and moody, the feel of these lost tracks is a really great change – and shows this excellent side of the pianist we'd never heard before. The music is spun out over two CDs, divided into sections – but it works wonderfully together as a whole! CD

New Charles LloydOf Course Of Course ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1965. New Copy .... $13.99
Key work by one of the most unique voices in 60s mainstream jazz – reedman Charles Lloyd, heard here on a set that's filled with amazing sounds, tones, and timings! The group here features Gabor Szabo on guitar – Lloyd's previous partner from the Chico Hamilton combo – plus Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – the latter two of whom have a great ear for the already-unusual sense of rhythm that Lloyd and Szabo picked up when working with Chico – and who also seem to bring in just a bit more "new thing" edge to the record. Lloyd plays both flute and tenor – the latter of which sounds sharper here than we remember – and titles include the cuts "Of Course, Of Course", "3rd Floor Richard", "Apex", "Goin' To Memphis", and "One For Joan".

VariousMondo Bossa Vol 4 – O Quatro ... CD
Hitland (Italy), 1960s/1970. New Copy .... $12.99
16 bossa nova stunners – all jazzy, all sweet, and all 60s all the way through! The set's overflowing with great numbers that form a triangle between the Brazilian, American, and European takes on the bossa sound of the 60s – featuring some favorites by artists on the left end of the bossa spectrum, and a few more surprising inclusions that make the set sound fresher than we expected. There's a number of tunes here we'd heard before, but in such a setting, they still sound mighty nice – and the package is a great one overall! Titles include "Cinnamon & Clove" by Lee Evans, "Sophisticated Wheels" by Gabor Szabo, "Terra Samba" by Fritz Pauer, "Midnight Bossa Nova" by Ingfried Hoffman, "Mas Que Nada" by Alan Lorber Orchestra, "Blues A Volante" by Baden Powell, "Tamba" by Tamba Trio, "Sambinha" by Samalanco Trio, and "Samba De Suenho" by Cal Tjader.

VariousSample & Breaks Of CTI Records – Compiled By Wax Poetics Japan ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1970s. New Copy .... $26.99
Some of the best-remembered cuts from the legendary CTI Records of the 70s – all tracks that have been sampled over the years, thanks to their funky breaks and amazing grooves! CTI and Kudu have been reissued plenty in recent years, but we'll honestly say that this is one of the hippest sets we've ever heard from the label's mighty catalog – and it's got plenty of tracks that aren't that common on the reissue market – a really fresh look at CTI, one that goes way past the bigger hits of the 70s, with a focus on the label's grooves that are being dug strongly in the 21st Century! Titles include "That's All Right With Me" by Esther Phillips, "Canned Funk" by Joe Farrell, "September 13" by Deodato, "Power Of Soul" by Idris Muhammad, "I Had A Dream" by Hubert Laws, "Sister Sanctified" by Stanley Turrentine, "Ziggidy Zag" by Gabor Szabo, "People Make The World Go Round" by Freddie Hubbard, and "Wildflower" by Hank Crawford.

Bill Plummer & The Cosmic BrotherhoodBill Plummer & The Cosmic Brotherhood ... LP
Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... Around May 15, 2014
Incredibly great – and one of the best of the late 60s trippy jazz albums on Impulse! Bill Plummer plays electric sitar with the "Cosmic Brotherood", a group that includes Tom Scott on saxes and electronics, Carol Kaye on Fender bass, Milt Holland on tabla, and Mike Craden on a heck of a lot of weird percussion. The tunes are groovy, "eastern" sounding, and have a modal jazzy approach that's similar to some of Scott's work, that of Chico Hamilton, Gabor Szabo, or some of the other groundbreaking, genre-crossing Impulse artists. Includes the totally great "Journey To The East", which has this mad trippy recitation – plus the tracks "Arc 294", "Lady Friend", "Antares", and "Song Plum". LP, Vinyl record album

New Elek BacsikI Love You ... LP
Bob Thiele Music, 1974. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Elek Bacsik was one of a handful of gypsy guitarists that had sort of a little subgenre of jazz (the most famous of whom was Gabor Szabo), and he largely recorded in France during the 60s. This is his first (and only?) album in the US – and it features a pretty hip batch of players, grooving in kind of a Flying Dutchman mode. Bacsik plays both guitar and violin on the record – and other musicians include Richard Davis, Oliver Nelson, Elvin Jones, Richard Landrum, and Ray Mantilla. Most tracks are pretty trad jazz numbers, but the album does include a nicely grooving version of "I Love You". Other titles include "I Can't Get Started", "Tea For Two", "Valse Triste", and "Season Of The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

New Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice and long, which gives the players plenty of space to explore. Personnel includes Steve Marcus on tenor and soprano sax, Mike Mandel on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and Larry Killian on congas – working with Coryell on long trippy tracks that remind us a bit of 60s work by Chico Hamilton, Charles Lloyd, and Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Call To The Higher Consciousness", "The Great Escape", and "Gypsy Queen". CD

New Cosmic Eye (Amancio D'Silva)Dream Sequence (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The most mindblowing work we've ever heard from guitarist Amancio D'Silva – a really freewheeling blend of jazz and Indian music, and a set that goes far beyond most of his other albums! The album definitely lives up to the dream sequence promised by the title – as it features one long track that spins out in a beautiful blend of tablas, sitar, flute, percussion, violin, and Amancio's own great electric guitar! The leader crafts these trippy solos that are a bit like the work of Gabor Szabo, but even more open-ended and exotic – and the group also features some great work on sax from Alan Branscombe, plus violin from John Mayer – who'd worked on previous experiments of this nature with Joe Harriott. Despite the length of the track, the record is never over-indulgent or repetitive at all – as D'Silva constantly shifts the mood and the sounds – creating this wonderful interplay that really makes for a scenic richness throughout – an evocative journey in music that holds us completely rapt all the way through.

Massively groovy work from Chico Hamilton – one of his standout swingers for Impulse Records in the 60s, and a set that really showcases all the changes in music he'd made for the decade! The set features some wonderful reed work from Jerome Richardson and Charlie Mariano, plus some especially great guitar from Gabor Szabo – a player who was rising to fame in Hamilton's group, but also stands out here with lots of the breezy grooves he'd bring to his own dates for Impulse. Tracks are short, but in a good way that really keeps them focused – and other players who complete the groove include Clark Terry on trumpet and Ron Carter on bass – both of whom nicely pick up Chico's sense of adventure and humor. Titles include "Monday Monday", "Daydream", "Stella By Starlight", "Evil Eye", "Manila", "That Boy With The Long Hair", and "Monday Monday". CD

New Chico HamiltonTransfusion ... CD
Studio West, 1962. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from Chico Hamilton – and a key batch of sides recorded between his 50s quintet sessions for Pacific Jazz and his later modal magic at Impulse! The work here was originally done for the Navy Swings series of radio shows – and features a Chico with the group that included Charles Lloyd on flute, tenor, and alto sax, Gabor Szabo on guitar, George Bohannon on trombone, and Albert Stinson on bass. The lack of piano and presence of trombone makes for a really unique feel to the group – one that's almost got extra bass at moments, thanks to the work of Bohannon – and which allows for some especially creative flourishes from Lloyd on sax – clearly opening up here, even at an early date. Tracks are short, but extremely creative throughout – and the 16 track set is filled with great originals by Lloyd that include "Vulture", "A Rose For Booker", "Transfusion", "Tales", "CL Blues", "One For Joan", "Homeward", and "Sun Yen Sen".

Dreamy instrumental work by this one-off combo – a group that includes members of Bill Plummer's Cosmic Brotherhood and Gabor Szabo's late 60s band – all coming together with styles that are even more exotic than those ensembles! The style here is often quite laidback – a bit folksy at points, but still always created from jazz-based instrumentation that includes vibes and organ from Lynn Blessing, keyboards from Richie Thompson, percussion from Hal Gordon, guitars from Art Johnson, and bass from Lou Kabok. Many tracks have that breezy groove that you might find in Szabo's Impulse and Skye albums – but again, with a slightly mellow feel – and the titles here are all original, and include "Juliet", "Stone Folk", "Grass Mass", "Sunflower", "Moorish Mode", "Hobo Express", and "Child At Play".

Psychedelic Jazz galore – a wonderful look at the hip blend of funky grooves and tripped-out production that emerged at the end of the 60s! The sounds here are every bit as amazing now as they were a few decades back – a genre-busting blend of electric instrumentation, chunky rhythms, and weird techniques – all mixing up elements from soul, funk, rock, Latin, and other sources into a really unique sort of groove! The work here is both from the US and overseas – pulled from Universal-owned labels like MPS, Chess, and Philips – and the package does a great job of mixing key examples of the genre with some other under-reissued gems. 16 tracks in all – including "The Squire" by Mike Nock, "The Fuzz" by Roy Ayers, "Burning Spear" by Jimmy Smith, "Summertime" by Gabor Szabo, "Zoom" by Volker Kriegel, "Uwiii" by Wolfgang Dauner, "The Moving Finger" by Dorothy Ashby, "Big Family" by Free Orbit, "Love Me" by Johnny Teupen, "Ganges Delta" by Okko, "Misty Purple" by Kuhn Brothers & The Mad Rockers, "Guru-Vin" by Don Sebesky, and "Season Of The Witch" by Julie Driscoll & Brian Auger.

New VariousHouse That Trane Built – The Story Of Impulse Records (4CD set) ... CD
Impulse, 1960s/1970s. Used 4CD .... Out Of Stock
A massive overview of the genius that was Impulse Records in the 60s and 70s – presented here as a 38 track collection that runs through all different modes of music at the label! The 4CD collection is a great counterpart to the book of the same name – but even if you don't pick up the book, the music alone tells a fantastic story – the evolution of jazz in from initial modern moments at the end of the 50s, through spiritual exploration and new freedoms of the 60s, to new righteous messages of the early 70s – all recorded beautifully by one of the greatest labels in the jazz business during the entire stretch! Perhaps our only complaint here is that the package leans too heavily on already-reissued material on Impulse, and doesn't really bring anything new to the table – but as an overview, it can't be beat – and features work by artists who include Charles Mingus, Albert Ayler, Paul Gonsalves, Gil Evans, Oliver Nelson, Freddie Hubbard, John Handy, Chico Hamilton, Ahmad Jamal, Chico O'Farrill, Pharoah Sanders, John Coltrane, Sonny Stitt, Gabor Szabo, and many more!
