Rez Abbasi Trio


The guitarist continues to tantalize with electric excursions that investigate his Pakistani roots and cosmopolitan personality. On last fall’s Continuous Beat this means a wealth of grooves, a nod to the extrapolation of ragas, and enough cross-hatched beats to keep everything up for grabs. As a soloist, he can fly away at any moment, but Abbasi is a sharp listener, and he’s always moving in step with his team, which tonight might be bolstered by an extra member: There has been talk of a special guest.
