Fareed Haque is one of those rare beasts – a legit jazz player who is also a totally legit classical guitarist. He was recently in town on tour and wanted to come check out some guitars so we asked if he’d be down to do some videos, and he not only said yes, but brought the whole band with him – Alex Austin on bass, Greg Fundis on drums and Kevin Kozol on keys – and we got an amazing concert right there in the showroom on a Sunday morning. Here’s Fareed and his group playing the great Thelonious Monk classic ‘Round Midnight, with Fareed playing a new G V Rubio ‘Concert 635’ in spruce and maple. We’ll be uploading more videos of Fareed both with his group and solo, including some killer jazz arrangements of pieces from the classical guitar rep, so stay tuned!
