Σαν σήμερα, 8 Μαρτίου 1936 γεννήθηκε στη Βουδαπέστη ο Ουγγρο-αμερικανός κιθαρίστας Gabor Szabo. Όχι ακριβώς βιρτουάζος, αλλά στιλίστας, διαμόρφωσε ένα προσωπικό ιδίωμα συνδυάζοντας στοιχεία από την jazz, την ποπ [συχνά ψυχεδελίζουσα] και το φοκλόρ της πατρίδας του Ουγγαρίας. Τον ακούμε σ’ ένα κομμάτι από δίσκο του ντράμερ-συνθέτη Chico Hamilton, περιστοιχισμένο από κορυφαίους [Clark Terry, Charlie Mariano, Ron Carter κ.ά.]

On this date, March 8, 1936, the Hungarian-American guitarist Gabor Szabo was born in Budapest. A stylist more than a virtuoso, he shaped a personal idiom combining elements from jazz, pop [often psychedelic] and the folk roots of his native Hungary. Here he is on a record by drummer-composer Chico Hamilton, surrounded by top musicians [Clark Terry, Charlie Mariano, Ron Carter etc.]

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
