Music: Rez Abbasi Group at the Blue Whale

April 25, 2012

Music

Led by Pakistani-born guitarist Abbasi, the Rez Abbasi Group is a band of heavy-hitting improvisers that includes New York City saxophonist David Binney attests to the global, genre-blind reach of jazz. The group's 2011 album "Sono Sono" was partly inspired by Pakistani Qawwali music, but the end result sounds equally informed by hard-edged fusion and even dashes of prog rock with ample room in between for Abbasi and company to cross borders of their own. The Blue Whale, 123 Astronaut E S. Onizuka St., Suite 301. 9 p.m. Thurs. $10. http://www.bluewhalemusic.com
