UNDERRATED: Jeff Parker

Perhaps best known for his off-kilter melodies in the knotty, instrumental indie rock excursions of Tortoise, Parker has spent the bulk of his career developing into one of the top modern jazz guitarists working today. His latest trio release, "Bright Light in Winter" (Delmark), mixes head-bobbing song craft with an elastic sense of improvisation. Listen to the gently propulsive track "Change" for an intriguing taste. Lenny Gonzalez
