From NYTimes.com:

Matt Brewer Group (Thursday) Matt Brewer has established a foothold as one of the stalwart young bassists on the progressive jazz scene, in bands led by the alto saxophonists Greg Osby and Steve Lehman. Here, drawing from his forthcoming debut album, he leads a quintet with Mr. Lehman, the tenor saxophonist Dayna Stephens, the pianist Aaron Parks and the drummer Marcus Gilmore. From 9:30 p.m. to midnight, Smalls Jazz Club, 183 West 10th Street, West Village, smallsjazzclub.com; $20. (Nate Chinen)

Kris Davis Trio (Saturday) In her piano playing as well as in her composing, Kris Davis favors a sparkling restlessness, often skirting chaos but rarely succumbing to it. She has productive history with the tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby and the drummer Gerald Cleaver, her partners in this trio. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow, Joey Baron (through Saturday) There’s a soft glow of erudition to “Wisteria,” a 2012 album by this acoustic piano trio. It comes from all three members of the group — the pianist Steve Kuhn, the bassist Steve Swallow and the drummer Joey Baron — but especially from Mr. Kuhn, one of jazz’s most careful rhapsodists, who recently turned 76. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080, birdlandjazz.com; $40 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)
