Guitarist Rez Abbasi has spent plenty of time immersing himself in South Asian music; he also has plenty of full-on jazz chops. In his own music as a bandleader, he treads in the wide space between one and the other. Abbasi's set at the CareFusion Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I., features his latest band, a group that features his acoustic guitar paired with vibraphone, bass and drums.
Personnel: Rez Abbasi, acoustic guitar; Bill Ware, vibraphone; Stephan Crump, bass; Eric McPherson, drums.
