If the only track on this album was the guitarist’s
interpretation of John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps,” it
would still be worth adding to your CD collection.
Played at a relaxed tempo and lightly textured with
what sounds like Internet glitching noises, the tune
takes on a cool, “acidy” vibe that proves a perfect vehicle for Haque’s solo
interludes with pianist Rob Clearfield, both of whom take inspired-sounding
improvisational paths though the harmony of the tune’s modulating
changes. Of the other seven songs presented here, Haque’s angular chord-melody
work on “Lollipops and Roses,” his extended single-note forays
on “Flood in Franklin Park”—reminiscent of CTI-era George Benson—his
oblique phrasing on the title track, and the pure outside adventurism of
“Inner Urge,” make it all great listening for hardcore jazz fans. Charleston
