“Gabor Szabo’s singular style and authentic sound is on full display across a set of originals and choice covers highlighted by unusual instrumentation and ingenious arrangements. From the sitar-starring adaptation of “Paint It Black” to the Latin rhythms and bossa nova beats, Szabo’s savvy jazz guitar innovations shine throughout.” – from the Modern Harmonic hype sticker.
