Yoska Gabor And His Gypsy Orchestra – Gypsy (1962)

FrontCover1.jpgThe real name of Yoskar Gabor was Yoska Nemeth (born in 1921 in Budapest, Hungary – died August 10, 1965 in Paris, France).

This Hungarian violinist (he was nicknamed “The prince of the gypsies”) had great sucess in his adopted country France, he was a highly celebrated violinonist in this time.

So he won the “Grand prix du disque” in 1956 and he was a importnat part of the Gsypsy Jazz Scene in France in thte Fifites. He played with musicians like Sonia Dimitrevitch and Django Reinhardt.

I guess he was a master of his own and if you like this sort of music, than … you should listen … and you´ll hear a wonderful and brilliant violin, celebrating the art of Gypsy Music !

This album was recorded in Paris/France for the French label Barcley Records.
