Gabor Szabo: The Sorcerer CD

Gabor Szabo

Gabor Szabo's quintet featuring Jimmy Stewart was one of the guitarist's very best units. Live performances like this, recorded at Boston's Jazz Workshop, document some of the excitement the group stirred in 1967-1968. The playing seems inspired, and the interplay within the group is something to behold - even when performing lightweight tunes like "The Beat Goes On." Szabó was an influential jazz guitarist, famous for mixing jazz, pop-rock and his native Hungarian music. Beginning in 1966 he recorded a well-received span of albums under his own name on the Impulse label.
