From NYTimes.com:

Duo Baars-Henneman (Tuesday) This exploratory Dutch duo — Ab Baars, who plays tenor saxophone, clarinet and shakuhachi (a Japanese flute), and Ig Henneman, a violist — are concluding a three-week United States tour in support of “Autumn Songs,” a suite of freely improvised and minimally composed pieces inspired by poems about the current season. Their performance on this night is presented by Search and Restore. At 9 p.m., Shapeshifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn, shapeshifterlab.com; $15. (Chinen)

Guillermo Klein (Tuesday through Nov. 11) The intensely thoughtful pianist-composer-bandleader Guillermo Klein recently released “Carrera” (Sunnyside), his first album since moving back to his native Buenos Aires from Barcelona. It’s a song-oriented body of work, rich with melody, often featuring his affectingly unstudied singing voice. Mr. Klein seems likely to reach further in that direction next week, with a smaller-than-usual ensemble featuring the uncompromising Argentine vocalist Liliana Herrero. At 9 and 11 p.m., Village Vanguard, 178 Seventh Avenue South, at 11th Street, West Village, (212) 255-4037, villagevanguard.com; $25 cover, with a one-drink minimum. (Chinen)

Zenón-Colley-Sanchez (Thursday) There’s a lot of overlapping history betweem the Puerto Rican alto saxophonist Miguel Zenón, the American bassist Scott Colley and the Mexican drummer Antonio Sanchez. There’s also a shared commitment to dynamic fluctuation, streamlined movement and cohesive cooperation — all good signs for this leaderless new trio. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village, (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $20, $10 for members. (Chinen)
