Rez Abbasi: Continuous Beat new CD

Rez Abbasi: Continuous Beat
Rez Abbasi belongs to an emerging group of second-generation Indian musicians, together with Vijay Iyer and Rudresh Mahanthappa. Won second place in the 2011 Down Beat Critics Poll, category “Rising Star.” This prepossessing guitarist has made a string of worthy albums in recent years, and on Continuous Beat he connects with an especially responsive rhythm team: bassist John Hébert and drummer Satoshi Takeishi. Their rapport, and the choice of repertoire, nods to the memory of Paul Motian, a master drummer and composer/bandleader with whom Abbasi had plans to collaborate before Motian’s death last year.
