An unusually successful pairing of Hungarian jazz guitar innovator, Gábor Szabó with R&B legend Bobby Womack. Szabó digs deep into a soulful groove, inspired by Womack's silky-smooth originals. High Contrast (1971) features "Breezin'," the Womack tune written especially for Szabó, which George Benson parlayed into a massive crossover hit in 1976, and several tunes Womack popularized in the film Across 110th Street. Produced by Tommy LiPuma, featuring Womack's sympathetic rhythm guitar and inspired drumming from the great Jim Keltner.
