Critic's picks / JAZZ

By Shaun Brady

Austrian-born guitarist Wolfgang Schalk lists jazz legend Wes Montgomery as "my hero forever" in the liner notes of his new CD, "Wanted" (Frame Up), but he needn't have stated his admiration so explicitly. Montgomery's legacy emerges throughout the album in Schalk's make-it-look-easy swing and brisk, mellifluous lines. Philly's own Pat Martino, is another obvious forebear, as is Pat Metheny when Schalk goes for hollow-body rock and roll. But the younger axeman tailors the influences to his own ends rather than simply throwing on hand-me-downs.
