Info for Dreams (Remastered)

ReMaster of this album from the influential guitarist. From the opening chords of 'Galatea's Guitar', it is clear this is no an ordinary Jazz album. Through the seven pieces here, the guitar is naturally at the forefront, yet the backing group is anything but secondary. For this album, his quintet (featuring guitar ace Jimmy Stewart) is augmented by Gary McFarland's fine string arrangements. The set features a nice selection of originals and pop covers. The warm tones and Eastern influences of 'Dreams' makes this one of Gabor Szabo's best albums.

Gabor Szabo may not have been as much of a household name as his jazz guitar counterparts (Grant Green & Wes Montgomery), but the Hungarian guitarist was a incredibly skilled player that posessed unmatched versatility. After starting his career as a member of the ever evolving Chico Hamilton Quintet in the early 60s, Szabo turned to Indian, Latin and psychedelic rock fusion to craft his jazz recordings as band leader on the adventurous Impulse label.
