Gabor Szabo

Gabor Szabo wasn’t exactly a traditional jazz guitarist, playing in a, hmmm, post-bop idiom that mixed pop, rock and the folk music of his native Hungary. Some probably wouldn’t consider his music jazz at all. He usually didn’t play archtops, preferring instead flattop Martins. But he was capable of composing and playing hauntingly beautiful music. Here is a solo clip with Szabo. Here are a few licks. And here is a Szabo site.
