Fareed Haque

I haven't kept up with guitarist Fareed Haque since Opaque. The summer issue of Jazz Improv included Haque's "Lahara Cadenza" from the upcoming Flat Earth Wow. This is superfunky. I've never been a great fan of the genre known as "jam," but I do appreciate grooviness in all its guises. Too many jazz guitarists seem to be groove-impaired, so I cut a lot of slack to any jazz guitarist who can groove. Now I'm listening to some live performances from Haque's website, and adding some of his recent cds to my wishlist.
