Rez Abbasi has grown exponentially, not only as a guitarist - his style has been inherently recognizable ever since he started gracing sessions in the early part of the decade - but as a composer and arranger as well. Abbasi has played on a couple of significant recordings in the past couple of years, not the least of which is Rudresh Mahanthappa's Kinsmen (issued on the Pi Recordings imprint), which is at the very least spiritually related to this effort.
Pakistani/American guitarist Rez Abbasi has been a part of the emerging growth of South Asian jazz musicians which includes the very noted names of pianist Vijay Iyer, saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa and guitarist Fareed Haque, and celebrated recordings Apti (Innova Recordings, 2009) and Kinsmen (Pi Recordings, 2008). A brilliant technician, Abbasi is noted for blending shrewd chops with South Asian and Western concepts. Here he presents Things To Come, not just follow-up to 2006's Bazaar (Zoho Music) but the fruition of new exploration and cerebral composition
