Gabor Szabo • Faces

Hungarian born jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo arrived in America in the late 1950s, having fled the anti-communist uprising in his homeland. By the early 1960s, he had begun to establish himself as one of jazz's rising stars, joining drummer Chico Hamilton's group in 1960. He left Hamilton in 1965 and briefly played in a group co-led with tenor saxophonist Charles Lloyd before going out on his own as a solo artist. Between 1965 and 1977, he recorded a string of solo albums for the Impulse, Blue Thumb, Skye, CTI and Mercury labels. Faces, recorded for Mercury in 1977, is very much a jazz-fusion album. Produced by trombonist and ex-Crusader Wayne Henderson, the rhythm section was drawn from the soul-jazz-funk band Pleasure with whom Henderson was working at the Fantasy label. The music is built on irresistible, earthy funk grooves that allow Szabo plenty of space to spin long, elegant guitar lines and meticulously constructed solos, both of which were his trademarks. Largely overlooked on its original release, Faces is now revealed as a minor classic within the jazz-fusion genre.
