THE LIVE WIRE: Fareed Haque

No one is going to confuse me with a full-on jazz critic, but I know what I like and Fareed Haque has all of it on full display in the video below. The guitar virtuoso is world-renowned for his ability to bring together elements of classical and jazz styles with a raw jam aesthetic, which makes for the kind of free-flowing performance below: it all seems effortless, but you can tell there’s more going on behind the scenes than we can capture in even the best musical snapshot. I’ll be catching his performance at the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis on November 28th, after I’ve watched “Mathgames” a few dozen times more. Join me!
