Gabor SzaboBacchanal ... CD CD format
Skye, Late 60s. Used ... $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". CD

New Gabor SzaboFaces (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
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 ... LP LP format
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Gabor SzaboMore Sorcery ... LP LP format
Impulse, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $7.99
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".

New Gabor SzaboNightflight (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Mercury/Vocalion (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD CD format
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
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

Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Mid-April, 2015
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 SzaboDreams ... CD CD format
Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Mid-April, 2015
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 Gabor SzaboHis Great Hits ... LP LP format
Impulse, Late 60s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent 2LP collection of some of the best work that Gabor Szabo recorded for the Impulse label during the mid and late 60s – tracks that mixed together jazz, Eastern spiritualism, and a hip 60s pop sensibility. At one time, we used to dismiss this stuff as too cheesy for our tastes – but going back to it, we find that it's not cheesy at all, and instead find the tracks to be incredibly inspired and visionary. Szabo's guitar is as groovy as ever – and other players include Tom Scott, Gary McFarland, Chico Hamilton, Sadao Watanabe, and Bill Plummer. Titles include "Evil Eye", "Mountain Heir", "Krishna", "Gypsy 66", "Lady Gabor", "Search For Nirvana", "Space", and "Spellbinder". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gabor SzaboJazz Raga ... LP LP format
Impulse, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

New Gary McFarland & Gabor SzaboSketch For Summer – Elegant Mid 60s Recordings For Verve, Impulse & Prestige ... CD CD format
Verve/Impulse/Prestige/El (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazingly rich compilation of work from 60s groovy geniuses Gabor Szabo and Gary McFarland – heard hear in each other's company on some tracks, and on some great solo moments as well! The package is huge – and features material the artists recorded for Verve, Prestige, and Impulse – all brought together with a very thoughtful approach, in ways that take the set way past simple reissue territory! Gabor's guitar work is always a treat, but it sounds especially nice here on these numbers – airy, evocative, and often set to modal rhythms that really suit it's open-ended sort of vibe. Gary McFarland's wonderful too – always in his grooviest, most bossa-inspired mode, and never in the more modern or rockish territory he could sometimes hit. Titles include a rare single McFarland recorded with Antonio Carlos Jobim – with "The Dreamer" and "Rivergirl" – plus solo tracks by Gary that include "Here I Am", "Bloop Bleep", "The Sting Of The Bee", "Winter Samba", "Eye Of The Devil", "Thanks But No Thanks", and "Runaway Heart". Gabor and Gary work together on "Gypsy Jam", "Last One To Be Loved", "Spring Song", and "Simpatico" – and Gabor plays alone on "Gypsy Queen, "Raga Doll", "Louise", "Space", "Mizrab", and "Yearning". 23 tracks in all!

New Gabor SzaboSmall World ... LP LP format
Four Leaf Clover (Sweden), 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare early 70s session from guitar maestro Gabor Szabo – recorded back in Europe, and with a sound that's very different than his American recordings of the time! If anything, the groove here is a bit more jazz-based – with less of the funk and fusion touches of some of Gabor's smoother US records. The guitar work is more introspective, and given more room to roam around – but also still has that mystical quality that made Gabor's Impulse recordings so great, and which is revisited nicely here on the longer tracks. The lineup includes a bit of electric piano, rhythm guitar, and bass – and although the set's not an overall funk outing, there's still some great moments that kick in with a spare funky groove that's mighty nice! Titles include "Lilac Glen", "My Kind Of People", "Impression Of My Country", "Foothill Patrol", "Another Dream", and a great version of "Mizrab"! LP, Vinyl record album

One of the best albums ever by this great Eastern European guitarist, and a groovy set of spiralling jazz tracks, recorded live at The Jazz Workshop with a 2-guitar frontline, and backing by a very tight rhythm combo. The sound is amazing, with lots of choppy modal grooves, and other longer tracks that have a vaguely mystical feel to them. Plus, this nicely done CD includes extra bonus cuts, adding 20 more minutes to the original album! Titles include "Los Matodoros", "Corcovado", "O Barquinho", "The Beat Goes On", "Lou-ise", "Space", and "Mizrab". CD

Excellent grooviness – and typical of the mad instrumental LPs that showed up on Impulse when they weren't cutting high-minded jazz! The record has a nice mix of easy funky jazz and pop psychedelia – performed by a range of groovy players conducted by Bob Thiele, and featuring Tom Scott & The California Dreamers, Bill Plummer, and Gabor Szabo. There's a nice cool version of "Fakin It", plus Charles Lloyd's "Forest Flower", "Light My Fire", and "Eight Miles High". Very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD CD format
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

Cosmic Eye (Amancio D'Silva)Dream Sequence (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
EMI/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
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.

New Amancio D'SilvaKonkan Dance ... CD CD format
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

Chico Hamilton6th Avenue Romp (LP sleeve edition) ... CD CD format
Joyous Shout, 2006. Used ... $9.99
A unusual sort of record for Chico Hamilton – one that pays tribute to soul and blues hits from years back – but in a way that recasts most of the numbers in a jazz mode! There's relatively strong guitar on the set – not in the breezy style used by Jim Hall or Gabor Szabo on Hamilton classics from the 50s and 60s, but in a rougher-edge style with plenty of bluesy overtones – clearly underscoring the soul component of the tunes. The overall groove is still nice and fluid, in keeping with Chico's other recent work – and he even sings a bit on the set, although not much. Titles include "Cleo's Mood", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Elevation", "Chicken Pox", "Strollin With Bone", "Thunderwalk", and "Gotta Make Things Right". CD

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

Chico HamiltonTransfusion ... CD CD format
Studio West, 1962. New Copy ... $7.99 11.99
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".

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

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.

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

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.

Mercury (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

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
