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.

Lost Tribe's recent "Soulfish" recording is a rhythmically expansive affair featuring a varied supply of jazz and hip-hop riffs powered by dual guitars, wiry alto sax and strong drumming.

Minus guitarist David Gilmore, who remained in New York due to prior engagements, the Tribe lost one of its main attractions: the counterpointed attacks of Gilmore and guitarist Adam Rogers.

There was a rewarding symmetry at work in Thursday night's performance by the Rez Abbasi Quintet at the Blue Whale. Not counting the interplay between the musicians, which was also quite evident, the performance comes just days before the first observance of International Jazz Day , an undertaking by UNESCO and Herbie Hancock that emphasizes the global reach of the music.

Though this year's Grammy nominations in jazz are without any Earth-rippling surprises à la last year's new-artist breakthrough by Esperanza Spalding, L.A.-born singer-songwriter Gretchen Parlato could've been considered a solid bet to follow in her footsteps if ours was the sort of world where lightning could strike twice.

Call me irresponsible. At least that's the line from the song that came to my mind looking back at a full list of the jazz and world music albums released in 2004. But irresponsibility isn't the problem. The truth is that so many CDs are coming down the pike that it's virtually impossible to give equal attention to every deserving disc. So, in retrospect, here are a few that didn't make the original cut but should not be overlooked.
