John Abercrombie Quartet

The action tends to glisten in the wily guitarist’s quartet music. Abercrombie has prioritized lyricism during his several decades as a bandleader, and his pearly runs mix nicely with the wise lines of pianist Marc Copland on the recent 39 Steps — sensitivity is everywhere. From the Bacharach nod to the deconstruction of “Melancholy Baby,” the band searches for the kind of consonance that centers on grace.
