1. Product Details
The long-awaited reissue of rare Eastern and psychedelic Jazz LP by the famous Hungarian guitarist originally released in 1968. The first time extended Edition with 2 bonus tracks: radio version of Fire Dance / Ferris Wheel from single 7 1969.Deluxe 8-sided Digipak CD and Gatefold Vinyl come with long exclusively written inner notes by the famous researcher and biographer Douglas Payne.Remastered by Martin Bowes at Cage Studios UK.Gabor Szabo was one of the most original guitarists to emerge in the 1960s mixing his Hungarian folk music heritage with a deep love of jazz and crafting a distinctive largely self-taught sound.Born in Budapest on March 8 1936 Szabo was inspired by a Roy Rogers cowboy movie to begin playing guitar when he was 14 and often played in dinner clubs and covert jam sessions while still living in his hometown. He escaped from his country at age 20 on the eve of the Communist uprising and eventually made his way to America settling with his family in California.He attended Berklee College 1958-1960 and in 1961 joined Chico Hamiltons innovative quintet featuring Charles Lloyd. Urged by Hamilton Szabo crafted a most distinctive sound as agile on intricate nearly-free runs as he was able to sound inspired during melodic passages. Szabo left the Hamilton group in 1965 to leave his mark on the pop-jazz of the Gary McFarland quintet and the energy music of Charles Lloyds fiery and underrated quartet featuring Ron Carter and Tony Williams.Szabo initiated a solo career in 1966 recording the exceptional album Spellbinder which yielded many inspired moments and Gypsy Queen the song Santana turned into a huge hit in 1970. Szabo formed an innovative quintet 1967-1969 featuring the brilliant classically trained guitarist Jimmy Stewart and recorded many notable albums during the late 60s. The emergence of rock music especially George Harrison Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix found Szabo experimenting with feedback and more commercially oriented forms of jazz.During the 70s Szabo regularly performed along the West Coast hypnotizing audiences with his enchanting spellbinding style. From 1970 he locked into a commercial groove even though records like Mizrab occasionally revealed his seamless jazz pop Gypsy Indian and Asian fusions. Szabo had revisited his homeland several times during the 70s finding opportunities to perform brilliantly with native talents. He was hospitalized during his final visit and died in 1982 just short of his 46th birthday.
