Music Picks / By Tom Meek

Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Schalk has used Thursdays in May on the usually comedy stage of Bang Studio to showcase his new album, Word of Ear, about which he's rightly excited. Schalk's straight-ahead approach is complemented here in live performance by the backing trio of the fine Venezuelan pianist Otmaro Ruiz, Mike Valerio on bass and Zach Harmon on drums. Schalk's style is friendly to mainstream jazz ears, but he's more inclined to offer up inventive original compositions rather than rely strictly on jazz standards. KCRW's Tom Schnabel is "knocked out" by Schalk's new album.
