Gary McFarland & Gabor SzaboSimpatico ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
An amazing collaboration between Gary McFarland and Gabor Szabo – easily one of the grooviest albums either artist recorded in the 60s! The set's heavy on McFarland's great style of arranging – that cool blend of bossa, jazz, and other elements that surfaced strongly on his 60s Verve sessions – but which here has an even sharper focus, thanks to Gabor Szabo's haunting work on guitar! Instrumentation includes Gary's vibes, Gabor's guitar, and some added guitar, bass, and drums – plus Latin percussion as well – the last of which is used to create complex rhythms that really make the tunes move nicely. Some cuts are mellow and laidback, others upbeat mod jazz – and there's also a fair bit of vocals on the set, but usually in that toned-down way you'd hear on Gary's own albums – heavily processed, and almost in the background behind the instruments. Titles include some great originals and a few very groovy covers – with tunes that include "Hey Here's A Heart", "She's A Cruiser", "You Will Pay", "Cool Water", "The Word", "Simpatico", "Spring Song", and "Yamaha Mama" – fitting enough, because the cover features the pair on motorcycles donated by Yamaha!

✨✧ Gabor SzaboBacchanal ... LP
Skye, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $12.99
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 SzaboDreams ... LP
Skye, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $32.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Gabor SzaboFaces (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Vocalion (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A really great groove from guitarist Gabor Szabo – a set that has the musician working with legendary producer Wayne Henderson, in a mode that moves into soul while still keeping all the best jazz elements intact! Szabo plays acoustic guitar alongside electric from Marlon McClain, with both players wrapped up nicely by Fender Rhodes work from the great Bobby Lyle – whose keyboard lines really act as the glue for all the grooves, while Henderson works to give them all the right sort of punch from the bottom! The mix of talents here comes together perfectly – like some of the best work on the Fantasy label at the time, or maybe a bit like some of the Mizell productions – but in a different way. Titles include "The Biz", "Magic Mystic Faces", "Gloomy Day", "Desiring You", "Misty Malarky Ying Yang", "Alicia", "The Last Song", and "Estate". CD features two bonus tracks – "The Biz (edit)" and "Alicia (edit)". CD

Gabor SzaboGypsy '66 ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Gabor Szabo's best records – a hip small combo session, featuring backup by Gary McFarland, Sadao Watanabe, Richard Davis, and Willie Rodriguez – an odd kind of lineup, but one that goes well with the offbeat grooves of the set! The overall sound has lots of touches of the McFarland Latinized rhythms of the time – but also stretches out with some of those great snakey guitar solos from Szabo – not nearly as extended or trippy here on other albums of the time, but in a really great way that makes for some tight, hip, mod little tracks! The set's one of Gabor's best from the 60s – and titles include "Flea Market", "Walk On By", "Gypsy Jam", "Gypsy '66", and "The Echo Of Love". The whole thing's kind of a compressed take on the sound of Gabor's Spellbinder album – if you know that one! CD

CTI, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
Wonderful work from guitarist Gabor Szabo – a record that really helped to shift his sound and style into the 70s! The groove here is often open and free – taking off from some of the exoticism of Gabor's 60s albums on Impulse and Skye, but with a bit more of the CTI electric groove – thanks to arrangements from Bob James, who also plays keyboards on the set! Drums are by Billy Cobham and Jack DeJohnette, who's especially funky on the great track "Thirteen" – and titles also include a great cover of "Summer Breeze", and the cuts "Mizrab", and "Concerto".

Mercury/Vocalion (UK), 1976. Used ... $11.99
Wonderful 70s work from Gabor Szabo – a record that has him picking up a bit more of a soulful undercurrent, while still keeping all his great guitar work nicely upfront! The album has Gabor recording at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios – with help from Philly soul arrangers Richie Rome and Bunny Sigler, who use some elements in the music from their work on Philly club hits – but still really keep enough space for Szabo to serve up some great solos as well! The groove is actually deeper and more inspiring than some of Gabor's work at CTI – with a bit more variety too – and titles include the spacey "Concorde (Night Flight)", plus "Babby Rattle Snake", "Smooth Sailin", "Theme For Gabor", "Every Minute Counts", and "Keep Smilin". CD features bonus tracks from a 12" single – "Keep Smilin (full length)", "Keep Smilin (edit)", and "Baby Rattle Snake (edit)". CD

Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... About July 22, 2015 (delayed)
One of Gabor Szabo's amazing late 60s albums for the Skye label – trippy, jazzy, and with a mod exotica vibe that would never be matched again! Gabor's playing guitar in a two-guitar frontline, which makes for lots of dreamy interplay between the strings – a shifting pattern of sound that's even more exotic than some of Szabo's earlier work on Impulse, thanks to added help from guitarist Francois Vaz. The rest of the group is great too – and features mighty Mike Melvoin on organ, plus fender bass, cello, and percussion – all produced by Gary McFarland with a wonderfully evocative feel! Titles include "Dear Prudence", "Stormy", "Walk Away Renee", "Michael From Mountains", "I've Just Seen A Face", and "You Won't See Me". CD

✨✧ Gabor SzaboJazz Raga ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest albums ever cut by guitarist Gabor Szabo – a set that also has him playing sitar as well! The album's got a sound that's as groovy as you'd expect from the title – a mix of Gabor's usual jazz modes, which are already pretty darn great, and some of the Indian music sounds that were bubbling under in the 60s – a wicked little blend that makes for an album we've treasured for years! Rhythms often hit that breezy Spellbinder mode of Gabor's Impulse years, but the addition of sitar and tablas makes for a great change too – one of the best chapters in Szabo's legendary 60s years. Bernard Pretty Purdie plays drums on all cuts, and titles include "Raga Doll", "Search for Nirvana", "Ravi", "Krishna", "Sophisticated Wheels", "Comin Back", "Summertime", "Mizrab", and "Walking On Nails".

A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guitar lineup that mixes rhythm and melody – perfect for the tunes on the set, like "Los Matadoros", "Spellbinder", "Comin Back", and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".

One of Gabor's hippest of the 70s – cut with a small electric group that provides a perfect backdrop for his stretched-out funky guitar work! The album features Bob James on piano, organ, and synth and Mike Wofford on electric piano – and the overall sound is sort of a 70s electric extension of the vibe that Gabor was laying down on his Sorcerer album and other Impulse sides.

✨✧ Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy ... 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". CD

✨✧ Gabor SzaboGabor Szabo In Stockholm (Small World/Belsta River) ... CD
Four Leaf Clover (Sweden), 1972/1978. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Very interesting work from Gabor Szabo – a double CD set that reissues two albums he recorded in Sweden during the 70s! Disc one contains the album Small World – a 1972 session that has Gabor on guitar and 12-string acoustic, with additional backing on some tracks that includes added guitar, electric piano, bass, and drums. The overall approach to the record is spare and free – much more introspective than Gabor's work in America at the time, with a lack of gimmicks that shows that overall, he wasn't as seduced by the funk he was putting out on records in the US. The other record, Belsta River, was recorded in 1978 – and has a bit more backing and electric feel than the other, but still stays in a freer mode than you'd expect from the time, especially given Gabor's slick work in America in the late 70s for Mercury. Titles include "24 Carat", "First Tune In The Morning", "Foothill Patrol", "Mizrab", "Lilac Green", and "My Kind Of People". CD

✨✧ Gabor SzaboSpellbinder ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Breezy brilliance from the legendary Gabor Szabo – and one of the grooviest albums the Hungarian guitarist recorded during the 60s! The set's almost a tightening up of the style that Szabo first brought to prominence in his work with Chico Hamilton – a sound that's got roots in gypsy guitar, but which is also influenced by modern, Latin, and soulful styles of the 60s. There's an airiness to Gabor's guitar that's almost trippy – but which never goes too far out on the set, and really keeps a focus on the backings laid down by the album's highly rhythmic combo of Chico Hamilton, Ron Carter, Victor Pantoja, and Willie Bobo. Szabo makes a surprisingly great vocal appearance on 2 tracks – "Bang Bang" and "Autumn Leaves" – both sung in this weirdly dark style that's a great contrast to the lightness of his work on guitar. Other titles include Gabor's hit "Spellbinder", plus "Gypsy Queen", "It Was A Very Good Year", "Yearning", and "Cheetah". LP, Vinyl record album

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
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

Amancio D'SilvaKonkan Dance ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A previously unissued album from Indian guitarist Amancio D'Silva – recorded during his legendary run of work at Lansdowne Studios, but making its first-ever appearance here! The work on the set is every bit as far-reaching and progressive as some of D'Silva's official releases – and like those sides, this one does a tremendous job of blending complicated guitar lines, unusual rhythms, and some super-hip instrumentation! Amancio has a way of playing guitar that's a bit like Gabor Szabo – airy and exotic at times, with a free-flowing quality that's really explored nicely here on the longish tunes on the set. Players include Don Rendell on saxophone, Stan Tracey on piano, and Alan Branscombe on flute, vibes, and electric piano – but best of all is the use of sitar and tabla on the record – often employed sparingly, but in a way that adds some great echoes of Indian music. Titles include "A Street In Bombay", "What Maria Sees", "A Song For Francesca", and "Konkan Dance". CD

Paul DesmondSkylark ... LP
CTI, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1976. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Pure brilliance from Coke Escovedo – an artist who really finds a way to make so many different things come together perfectly – with results that are even stronger than his previous work in Azteca and Santana! The set's got a warm blend of Latin roots, modern soul, and jazzy fusion – all produced by the great Pat Gleeson with the same sort of genre-bending care he brought to his own work as a musician! Gleeson makes things smooth and spacey, but never slick – really layering the sound at a level that's somewhere in the Mizell family territory, but with a bit of a different vibe. Coke's percussion is wonderful – and the set features vocals from Errol Knowles, plus backing from The Waters, and guest instrumentation from both Joe Henderson on tenor and Gabor Szabo on guitar. The whole thing's great, and titles include the sublime groover "I Wouldn't Change A Thing", a sweet remake of Willie Bobo's "Fried Neckbones & Some Home Fries", and the tracks "Back Seat", "Runaway", "Hangin On", "Somebody's Callin", and "Diamond Dust/Vida".

Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
Very very cool set of weird grooves from Chico Hamilton. Some tracks are Latiny, others have lots of weird guitar, and they're all kind of spacey, but not exactly free. This period of Chico's is one of his weirdest, and it's kind of hard to figure out where he was heading, but the trip to that place is always a joy, and these tracks are all marked by a very fresh approach to jazz. Players include Willie Bobo, Jimmy Woods, Harold Land, Lou Blackburn, and other obscure jazz players from the LA underground. Gabor Szabo, of course, plays guitar on most tracks as well. With "Tarantula", "Swampy", "Fire Works", and "Carol's Walk". LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Szabo's guitar is a key element of this sound – but you can't discount Chico's amazingly open approach to the drums, and his freewheeling manner of spinning out a lively dancing rhythm.

Gary McFarlandThis Is Gary McFarland – The Jazz Legend Who Should Have Been A Pop Star (CD & DVD) ... CD
Century 67, 1965/2014. New Copy CD & DVD ... Just Sold Out!
A lost treasure from the great Gary McFarland – a never-heard live recording, matched here with a beautiful documentary on his too-short life! The live performance is wonderful – a small combo date in a Seattle nightclub in the mid 60s – with a very groovy group that features Sadao Watanabe on tenor and flute, Gabor Szabo on guitar, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Joe Cocuzzo on drums – all working at a level that's like some of Gary's best music of the time for Impulse and Verve! McFarland's vibes are wonderful throughout, and ring out beautifully next to the guitar – and the inclusion of Watanabe is a great surprise, and adds in some slight bossa elements to the music too. Titles include McFarland's classic "Pecos Pete", plus "Hard Day's Night", "Train Samba", "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "From Russia With Love", and an "Unknown Latin Number". The DVD is great, too – and includes the story of Gary's brief but wonderful career, his mysterious death, and his continuing legacy in music – with vintage footage that includes Stan Getz playing with McFarland, and appearances by Phil Woods, Bill Evans, Clark Terry, and many other folks who worked with Gary.

✨✧ VariousImpulsive – Revolutionary Jazz Reworked ... CD
Impulse, 2005. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing reworking of the Impulse Records groove – and a fitting tribute to one of the hippest jazz labels ever! The set's got a depth and brilliance that goes far beyond all other remix projects of its type – with none of the easy tricks of the Verve Remix project, or the off-pace dancefloor styles of the Motown one. Instead, the producers here really stay in the range of the label's original soulful and spiritual approach to jazz – in a way that draws from the older work for inspiration, but remakes it with a sound that's often quite respectful of the original! One of the key factors of the set is the strength of the remixers – as most here have a clearly demonstrated love and understanding of the original work, and weren't just introduced to the records in the studio – so they're clearly working out of love and respect, and not just a quickie remix paycheck. Titles include "A Helluva Town (Sa Ra Go rmx)" by George Russell, "Mizrab (Prefuse 73 remix)" by Gabor Szabo, "Swing Low Sweet Cadillac (Gerardo Frisina rmx)" by Dizzy Gillespie, "At Night (Ravi Coltrane w/Julie Patton)" by John Coltrane, "Stolen Moments (Teflon Tel-Aviv rmx)" by Oliver Nelson, "Bamboo Flute Blues (Kid Koala rmx)" by Yusef Lateef, "Astral Traveling (Boozoo Bajou rmx)" by Pharoah Sanders, and "Attica Blues (Chief Xcel rmx)".

Flying Dutchman, 1972. Used Gatefold ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico HamiltonDrumfusion ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Searing work from Chico's hip quintet of the early 60s – much more forceful than his 50s sides for Pacific Jazz, with a burning, full-on style that really puts the horns upfront! The group features tenor and flute by a young Charles Lloyd, great guitar by Gabor Szabo, and trombone by Garnett Brown – plus complicated rhythms from Chico on drums and Albert Stinson on bass – still managing to make things swing, and letting the whole session come off with a full-on, almost soulful/spiritual feel. Not as "out" as some of the Impulse work, not as wispy as his Reprise album, and with a much more pronounced swing than some of his other Columbia sides! Titles include "One For Joan", "Freedom Traveler", "Tales", "Homeward", and "A Rose For Booker". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing.)

✨✧ Charles LloydOf Course Of Course ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousJazz Club – Psychedelic Jazz – The Best Mindblowing Spaced-Out Jazz Grooves ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Cosmic Eye (Amancio D'Silva)Dream Sequence (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... 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.

✨✧ Chico HamiltonTransfusion ... CD
Studio West, 1962. New Copy ... 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".

✨✧ Charles LloydManhattan Stories – Live At Judson Hall/Live At Slugs Saloon ... CD
Resonance, 1965. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Never-heard music from the great Charles Lloyd – two well-recorded live sets from the 60s, both with a very unusual group! The lineup has Lloyd on tenor, soprano, and flute, working with frequent partner Gabor Szabo on guitar – but the rest of the quartet also features Ron Carter on bass and Pete LaRoca on drums – two players who really have an open, laidback way of letting the music flow! All tracks are nice and long, and Lloyd is wonderfully expressive – maybe even more so than on his studio records from the period – with these long, soulful, spiritual solos that almost make us feel like he's picked up the torch from the recently-departed Eric Dolphy – especially in the way that Dolphy would spin things out in a live setting. The set features two versions of "Lady Gabor", both a bit different – plus the titles "How Can I Tell You", "Slug's Blues", "Sweet Georgia Bright", and "Dream Weaver". CD
