Gabor SzaboBest Of Gabor Szabo ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
Super-hip stuff from guitarist Gabor Szabo! If you don't know his style, Gabor had this breezy chordal approach that was perfect for some of the hippy dippy/psyche jazz settings he was working with at Impulse Records. The tracks on the set mix together bossa grooves, eastern rhythms, easy pop, and odd instrumental effects – and the result is some of the most compelling kitschy jazz of the late 60s. Titles include "Spellbinder", "Witchcraft", "Gypsy Queen", "Sophisticated Wheels", "Walk On By", and "Little Boat". LP, Vinyl record album

Gabor SzaboRambler ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... About December 4, 2017
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. Titles include "Rambler", "New Love", "Reinhardt", and "All Is Well". CD

Gabor SzaboSorcerer ... CD
Impulse, 1967. Used ... $8.99
A key moment in the career of Hungarian guitarist Gabor Szabo – a player who'd already been making some great music in the group of Chico Hamilton, but who really cemented his reputation with the sound on this set! Right from the start, Gabor was always a guitarist with something very new, very fresh to offer – an approach that was partly steeped in older European gypsy guitar sounds, but also inflected electrically towards a trippier, more modal, more psychedelic quality – something he'd explore strongly on this sweet little set. The album begins in a bossa mode, then really trips out – as a second guitar weaves lines around Gabor's own – and drums and bass provide a very cool modal groove. Titles include "Los Matodoros", "Corcovado", "O Barquinho", "The Beat Goes On", "Lou-ise", "Space", and "Mizrab". CD

✨✧ Gabor SzaboGypsy '66 ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Gabor SzaboNightflight ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Gabor SzaboSpellbinder ... CD
Impulse, 1966. Used ... Temporarily 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". CD

✨✧ Gabor SzaboMacho ... LP
Salvation, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Coke EscovedoComin' At Ya! ... LP
Mercury (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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".

✨✧ Chico Hamilton6th Avenue Romp (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Joyous Shout, 2006. Used ... $6.99
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

Bill Plummer & The Cosmic BrotherhoodBill Plummer & The Cosmic Brotherhood ... LP
Impulse/Captain High (Germany), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... On October 15, 2017 (delayed)
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

VariousCool Heat – The Best Of CTI Records ... CD
CTI/Robinsongs (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A great introduction to the legendary CTI Records label from the 70s – a groundbreaking imprint for both jazz and soul, and a company who helped a whole generation of musicians find a new way forward! The set's got a really great balance – with both some of the funky jazz and soulful vocal cuts recorded by the label and it's partner imprint, Kudu – and over the course of the 25 tracks on the extended collection, you'll not only hear a great evolution in grooves for the 70s generation – but also a fair bit of tracks that have gone onto new lives as sample cuts too! Titles include "Mama Wailer" by Lonnie Smith, "Say You Love Me" by Patti Austin, "2001 – Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Deodato, "Jaws" by Lalo Schifrin, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "Supership" by George Benson, "Baltimore" by Nina Simone, "Polar AC" by Freddie Hubbard, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Esther Phillips, "It's Going To Take Some Time" by Gabor Szabo, "Flute Song" by George Benson & Joe Farrell, "Forecast" by Eric Gale, "Baretta's Theme" by Ron Carter, "Breakout" by Johnny Hammond, "Wildflower" by Hank Crawford, "Westchester Lady" by Bob James, "Grand Prix" by Fuse One, "Shoogie Wanna Boogie" by Dave Matthews, "Be Yourself" by Kenny Burrell, "Sugar" by Stanley Turrentine, "Red Clay" by Freddie Hubbard, "Super Strut" by Deodato, and "Follow Your Heart" by Joe Farrell.

✨✧ Charles LloydOf Course Of Course ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ VariousSounds Of The Unexpected – Weird & Wacky Instrumentals From Pop's Final Frontiers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally cool collection of really offbeat numbers with a space age sort of theme – tunes that run the gamut from rock instrumentals to electronic pop – with lots of stops along the space in between! The package is right up there with some of the best "themed" collections by Ace Records – not just a superb selection of tunes, but really put together in the best way possible – with thoughtful transitions between the tunes, and a huge booklet of notes and label images – with some text on the late Vicki Fox, who put together this set, and others for Ace in the past. You'll definitely recognize a few names here, but the setting makes them sound really amazing and unique – especially some of the soul, jazz, and blues artists in the mix. Titles include "Waltz In Orbit" by Ray Cathode, "Watusi Zombie" by Jan Davis, "Savage Girl" by Felix & His Fabulous Cats, "War Of The Worlds" by The Atlantics, "Caravan" by Gabor Szabo, "Hot Pot" by The Tornados, "Funky Me" by Timmy Thomas, "Uh Oh" by The Imps, "Flameout" by 101 Strings, "It's Karate Time" by Travis Wammack, "Long Sentence" by The Upsetters, "B'Wana Bongos" by Preston Epps, "Hung Over" by The Martinis, "Music To Watch Space Girls By" by Leonard Nimoy, "Aztec" by Bo Diddley, "Watusie Freeze (part 1)" by Big Walter & The Thunderbirds, and "RFD Rangoon" by The Forbidden Five.
