Wonderful work from guitarist Gabor Szabo – a record that really helped to shift his sound and style into the 70s! The groove here is often open and free – taking off from some of the exoticism of Gabor’s 60s albums on Impulse and Skye, but with a bit more of the CTI electric groove – thanks to arrangements from Bob James, who also plays keyboards on the set! The mix of Gabor’s exotic tones and the deeper groove of CTI is a surprisingly great blend – and really helps to open up the guitarist’s sound for a whole new generation. Drums are by Billy Cobham and Jack DeJohnette, who’s especially funky on the great track “Thirteen” – and titles also include a great cover of “Summer Breeze”, and the cuts “Mizrab”, and “Concerto”.Gabor Szabo, who always had an original sound on the guitar (displaying his Hungarian heritage), is backed by a string section, horns and a rhythm section (including bassist Ron Carter and either Billy Cobham or Jack DeJohnette on drums) on this Bob James production. For the program which has not yet reissued on CD, Szabo performs two originals, a pair of pop tunes and an adaptation of a Shostakovich classical concerto. The music is well played but not particularly memorable. –AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
