Greetings friends and music lovers!

Gabor Szabo's Dreams (1968) is mesmerizing, enchanting and, well.. dreamy. The more I listen to it the more I want to hear it, and the more I'm willing to embrace the "easy jazz" components (which at first put me off a bit) of this masterpiece.
Gabor escaped his homeland (Communist Hungary) in 1956 and moved to the US, where he attended Berklee College of Music. His compositions incorporate American jazz, Hungarian pop, folk music, and Gypsy jazz mixed with elements of rock.

Pretty ambitious, right?

So this album is definitely easy listening.. but there's much more to it..

I hope you enjoy!

...and Gypsy jazz...


I definitely hear that, reminds me a little of Django with an updated influence from rock and progressive jazz.

Reminds me of Django too! There is something about that combo (Gypsy/jazz) that I just adore.

Thank you for this! You also might want to check another good Hungarian jazz musician Aladar Pege

This is a cool find. I usually listen to Django after dinner when we are all having drinks, shooting pool and smoking cigars, so I think this could end up in the rotation.

IBC Root beer and Bryers, of course!
lol, failed the test already so who's up for the task?

Now if there are on a table a few choice spirits and some ice, perhaps a spash of water or tonic, we can talk! (And who better but the sober one pouring? I'll be liberal with the pour.)

I'm willing to risk it, what's the worst that could happen?

(to the tolling of the death knell....) the fatal words have been spoken.

Is the whole room meant to shake like that? and is that a claw emerging from a crack in the walls?

Oh great now I've spilt the beer. Well you have your answer then.

Thanks for this - I haven't thought of him in many years.

Only thing worthwhile on ATS today.
