Jazz Listings from the New York Times


From NYTimes.com:

Jaga Jazzist (Sunday) Twitchy but earnest, with a deep investment in electronic texture, this nine-piece Norwegian band doesn’t often make its way here, making this a noteworthy occasion right out of the gate. The group, which includes shrewd improvisers like the saxophonist-guitarist-keyboardist Lars Horntveth and the trumpeter-bassist-vibraphonist Mathias Eick, has a new EP, “Bananfluer Overalt,” due out on Ninja Tune this month. At 7 p.m., Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, near Thompson Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 505-3474, lepoissonrouge.com; $20. (Chinen)

Eri Yamamoto Trio (Sunday) “In Each Day, Something Good” (Aum Fidelity) is the most recent album from the pianist Eri Yamamoto, who based its reflective themes on a silent film by Yasujiro Ozu. Her sympathetic partners, here as on the album, are the bassist David Ambrosio and the drummer Ikuo Takeuchi. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

From NYTimes.com:

Bargemusic (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday) The programming at this intimate floating concert hall ranges far and wide this week. On Friday the cellist Yoed Nir plays unaccompanied works by Cassado, Ligeti, Bach and Piazzolla, and Saturday the pianists Philip Edward Fisher and Steven Beck play piano duets by Schubert and Beethoven (including a transcription of the “Grosse Fuge”). The Cassatt Quartet plays string quartets by Beethoven (Op. 131) and Barber, as well as the Brahms F minor Quintet (Op. 34), with the pianist Ursula Oppens, on Sunday. And in a pair of contemporary programs, the pianist Olga Vinokur plays music by Barber, Scott Wheeler, Ned Rorem, William Bolcom, Wayne Barker and Aaron Jay Kernis, on Wednesday, and two new-music groups — the American Modern Ensemble and Deoro — join forces in a freewheeling program on Thursday. Friday, Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m., Bargemusic, Fulton Ferry Landing next to the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn, (718) 624-2083, bargemusic.org; $35, $30 for 65+; $15 for students, except Sunday, which is $40, $35 for 65+; $15 for students.

Rite of Summer Festival (Saturday) This new festival of free new-music concerts begins with Terry Riley’s proto-Minimalist classic, “In C,” performed by an ensemble of 40 players led by the keyboardist Jed Distler. You never know exactly what you’ll get with “In C,” since the individual musicians within the ensemble can work through the score at whatever pace they see fit. But Mr. Distler has overseen several engaging performances of the work at the Cornelia Street Café in recent years, and this outdoor reading looks promising. At 1 and 3 p.m., Colonels’ Row, Governors Island
