‘Intents and Purposes’ is Rez Abbasi's third Enja album. The New Yorker guitarist with Pakistani roots has found an enticing way to respect both the Indian musical Culture and Charlie Parker at the same time. In his words: "Thinking of the 1970's conjures up a plethora of historical events, one of which is the radical invention of fully electronic instruments. Galvanized in the late 60's but refined in the 70's, these sound-manipulating machines spawned many new genres and sub-genres of music. Recently I've felt the urge to look back at what is often called Jazz-Rock or Jazz-Fusion and realized there are many great compositions that lie under the layers of the electrified sounds. I presented the idea of playing some of these tunes acoustically to my group, RAAQ. I knew that my band mates, Bill, Stephan and Eric would interpret these compositions with modernity, depth and personal vision, and that the chamber-like quality this group carries would shine a different light on this music.
