Pakistani-American Guitarist

Imagine if you will, a four year old boy arriving in Los Angeles, CA after spending his initial years in Karachi, Pakistan; growing up in Southern California in the 70’s, surfing, riding motocross, chomping fast food and listening to rock ‘n roll; introduced to an instrument called the guitar and subsequently forming a garage band; hearing jazz at 16 and deciding to pursue a college degree in America’s homegrown music; ending up in New York as one of today’s foremost modern jazz guitarists.

That’s the rough guide to Rez Abbasi and never has there been a more poignant time to tell it. Read more about Rez Abbasi on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
