Gábor Szabó - Bacchanal

A rare gem of Eastern and psychedelic Jazz.

The long-awaited reissue of this rare Eastern and psychedelic Jazz LP by the famous Hungarian guitarist Gábor Szabó, originally released in 1968. For the first time and as extended Edition with four bonus tracks: radio version from 1968/69 7” singles.

Gábor Szabó was one of the most original guitarists to emerge in the 1960s, mixing his Hungarian folk music heritage with a deep love of jazz and crafting a distinctive, largely self-taught sound. Born in Budapest, on March 8, 1936, Szabo was inspired by a Roy Rogers cowboy movie to begin playing guitar when he was 14 and often played in dinner clubs and covert jam sessions while still living in his hometown. He escaped from his country at age 20 on the eve of the Communist uprising and eventually made his way to America, settling with his family in California.
