Though they came from radically different cultures and found their way into Jazz via widely divergent routes, Gabor Szabo and Gary McFarland formed an all-too brief working relationship that produced a spectacular range of solo and collaborative works spanning Jazz, Bossa Nova, Psychedelia, Indian Raga, Hungarian Folk, Orchestral and Film Music.

Focusing on the mid-sixties years with Prestige, Verve and Impulse, this edition comprises highlights from Gypsy 66, Spellbinder, Jazz Raga, The Sorcerer, Simpatico, The In Sound, Scorpio and Other Signs and McFarland’s score for Eye of the Devil and includes such impossible rarities as Gary s characteristically serene performances of Margo Guryan’s Rivergirl and The Dreamer by Antonio Carlos Jobim.
