Gabor Szabo Day

Gábor István Szabó (8 March 1936 – 26 February 1982) was a guitarist whose style incorporated jazz, pop, rock, and Hungarian music.

Gábor Szabó was born in Budapest, Hungary, and began playing guitar at the age of 14, inspired by jazz music heard on Voice of America radio broadcasts.[1] He escaped Communist Hungary in 1956, the year of the attempted revolt against Soviet-dominated Communist rule, and moved to the United States where he attended the Berklee School of Music in Boston.
