Music: Trio M at Musicians Institute

One of the top jazz releases of the new year, "Guest House" by Trio M features pianist Myra Melford backed by bassist Mark Dresser and drummer Matt Wilson coursing through oblique-angled yet warm instrumentals. With Melford's rich melodies at the center of a host of deep-pocketed rhythms, the band continues jazz's legacy of avant-garde, in-the-moment exploration but never at the expense of accessibility. The Musicians Institute, 1655 N. McCadden Place, L.A. 8:30 p.m. Fri. $25.
