Rez Abbasi specializes in high-wire blends of jazz, fusion and South Asian music. The guitar ace is working unplugged here, and fortunately, the format flatters his nimble creations. Vibist Bill Ware, bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Eric McPherson fill out the band. Here, you'll hear the group's takes on pieces by classic fusion outfits such as Weather Report, Return to Forever and the Headhunters.
