Spellbinder [Vinyl] by Alliance at Tony Reedus. MPN: ELP 217. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. DJ's delight! For this perfectly named 1966 set by ace guitarist Gabor Szabo, the Hungarian-born, gypsy-influenced stylist called in his former boss,
With his ears finely tuned to the rock revolution happening outside the jazz world, Szabo was one of the first jazz guitarists to pick up on the emerging psychedelic sound, a marvelously mind-bending phenomenon that's all over Spellbinder--just check the raga-esque vocal version of Sonny Bono's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" and the drone-drenched go-go shaker "Gypsy Queen" (reportedly where The Doors' Robbie Krieger got his opening licks for "The End"!). Of course, it wouldn't be a Szabo album without his caressing a tender ballad or two, and this one boasts misty-eyed readings of "My Foolish Heart" and "Autumn Leaves." A jazz-rock masterpiece.
