Editors’ Notes

Award-winning guitarist Fareed Haque has played with Sting and Zawinul Syndicate and released several albums as a leader, so don’t let this title fool you. Here, the guitarist bounces between a veteran trio (with bassist George Mraz and drummer Billy Hart) and a young post-bop quintet based in Chicago. Trio highlights include the nice give-and-take on the title track (with Haque on acoustic) and a downright tender version of “Lollipops and Roses.” With tabla and piano added for the quintet format, the jaunty but free-flowing “Waiting for Red” kicks things off in style. But it’s the unique version of “Giant Steps” that stands out for eschewing the usual technical flash associated with this song for a slightly disorienting groove and modern beats. Haque also looks back for a brief and straight organ-bass-guitar version of Duke Ellington’s “I Got It Bad and That Ain’t Good” and Joe Henderson’s “Inner Urge,” which shines the light on pianist Rob Clearfield. For fans of Pat Martino or Kurt Rosenwinkle; Fareed Haque knows his history but isn’t daunted by it.
