[Edit]

Hungarian-born guitarist Gabor Szabo was a master of many styles, and he blended them all together to create his own inimitable sound. Fusing traditional gypsy music, Spanish classical, laid-back jazz, sitar-laced Eastern mysticism, and straight forward American pop (plus his own schooling at Berklee and his experience playing with Chico Hamilton), he came up with something that was both inventive and familiar, an approach that endeared him to listeners of all backgrounds. The Sorcerer is arguably his best all around solo album, recorded live at Boston's Jazz Workshop over two nights in April 1967. Backed by a stellar group that included Jimmy Stewart and Hal Gordon, and produced by Bob Thiele, it finds Gabor playing both well-known covers ("The Beat Goes On," "Stronger Than Us"), and captivating originals like the trippy, feedback-enhanced "Space" and the Arabic sounding "Mizrab." This reissue version also sports three extra tracks originally featured on the follow-up More Sorcery.
