Punjab 10. Ain't No Sunshine Talented guitarist and composer Rez Abbasi has taken a new approach to his music. On his new Sunnyside CD, Natural Selection, he has ditched his electric guitar and convened the Rez Abbasi Acoustic Quartet, a new ensemble made up of entirely acoustic instrumentalists. Got it. + add. album.
Abbasi switches between guitar and sitar, sounding not only comfortable in each of the styles but easily combining them together to create stimulating new music. Is this soul-jazz, fusion, Indian music, post-bop or world fusion? The answer has to be: All of them and none of them.

Rez Abbasi, born of Pakistani parents, reared in SoCal, emigrant to New York, plies his unique Middle-Eastern organ-trio jazz (ably augmented by saxists Rudresh Mahanthappa and Mark Mommaas, hand drummer Guatam Siram, and Indian vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia) to great effect in this his fifth outing as leader. Bazaar is a fascinating jazz album that combines elements of Indian music, surf music, and jazz organ into a unique soundscape. The primary performers on the CD are Rez Abassi on guitar, Gary Versace on hammond organ, and Danny Weiss on drums & tabla.
