Fareed Haque- Guitar
Fareed Haque is a modern guitar virtuoso. Steeped in classical and jazz traditions, his unique command of the guitar and different musical styles inspire his musical ventures with tradition and fearless innovation. He has spent much of his career defying expectations of what a jazz guitarist is supposed to do and sound like. With this trio, Haque continues to do this, collaborating with Tony Monaco on a hard-hitting organ combo and Paul Wertico on the drums.
Tony Monaco- Piano
Organist Tony Monaco from Columbus, Ohio, whose reserves of energy match the guitarist’s, studied with greats Hank Marr and Don Patterson but his greasy, rambunctious style owes serious debts to the great Jimmy Smith.
Paul Wertico- Drums
Hailed in the press as “One of the most versatile and musical drummers in music today”, Paul Wertico comes from Chicago, Illinois. In 1983, Wertico joined the Pat Metheny Group, starting a long and fruitful collaboration that continued for 18 years, resulting in eight recordings, several gold records, and the winning of seven Grammy Awards.
