Jazz Listings From The New York Times

English: Tyshawn Sorey at moers festival 2010

From The New York Times:

Ingrid Laubrock, Kris Davis, Tyshawn Sorey (Saturday) “Union,” released a few years ago, was a fitting title for the second album by this fearless experimental trio, which also goes by the name Paradoxical Frog. The group typically interrogates compositions by all three members: Ms. Laubrock, a saxophonist, Ms. Davis, a pianist, and Mr. Sorey, a drummer. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com. (Chinen)

John Scofield Trio (Tuesday through July 11) The guitarist John Scofield has a lot of history with the bassist Steve Swallow and the drummer Bill Stewart, who make up this propulsive and unpredictable trio. Their most recent album together — “EnRoute,” from just over a decade ago — was recorded live in a New York club, on an engagement much like this one. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080, birdlandjazz.com. (Chinen)

Vision Festival (Sunday through July 12) This festival, the country’s leading summit of avant-garde jazz, celebrates its 20th anniversary with a focus on bridging the past and the future. This year’s programming begins on Sunday, with a pair of related films at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue, East Village. On Monday a symposium and panel titled “Improvising Agency For Change: Celebrating 20 Years of Vision Festival,” with speakers including the poet Nathaniel Mackey and the pianist Vijay Iyer, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Buell Hall at Columbia University, 515 West 116th Street. The remainder of the festival will be held at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South, with Tuesday’s program celebrating the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, and Wednesday’s concert featuring the Sun Ra Arkestra. Highlights on Thursday include the Dave Burrell Civil War Project, with Mr. Burrell on piano and Steve Swell on trombone; and a group featuring Milford Graves on percussion, William Parker on bass and Charles Gayle on saxophone. More information is at artsforart.org. (Chinen)

‘Drawing Sound Part I: Billy Martin’ (Wednesday through July 10) The Drawing Center, a single-media but multidimensional museum in SoHo, has commissioned the drummer Billy Martin to present several nights of music based on his hand-drawn graphic scores. His collaborators, different each night, will include the ensembles Alarm Will Sound and Fang Percussion; the electronics artists Annie Gosfield and Ikue Mori; the writer Paul Auster; and the keyboardist John Medeski, Mr. Martin’s longtime band mate in Medeski Martin & Wood. At 7:30 p.m., 35 Wooster Street, 212-219-2166, drawingcenter.org. (Chinen)

From The New York Times:

Bang on a Can (Thursday) This adventurous organization continues its partnership with the Jewish Museum. In conjunction with the exhibit “Repetition and Difference,” in which historic artifacts are juxtaposed with contemporary art, the versatile composer and violinist Todd Reynolds performs a program for violin and electronics by Bang on a Can co-founders Michael Gordon and David Lang, as well as his own works and pieces by Ingram Marshall. At 7:30 p.m., 1109 Fifth Avenue, at 92nd Street, 212-423-3337, thejewishmuseum.org. (Schweitzer)

Fast Forward and Gyan Riley (through July 12) Fast Forward, an unconventional new-music ensemble, concludes its residency at the Stone on Sunday in two sets that feature mixed instruments, including violin (Tom Chiu) and something called cracklebox (Dave Ruder) at 10 p.m. On Tuesday, the guitarist Gyan Riley takes the rudder as he charts a weeklong exploration of adventurous chamber music. Thursday’s set with the pianist Sarah Cahill and the clarinetist Evan Ziporyn, at 8 p.m., promises to be a highlight. A full schedule is online. At 8 and 10 p.m., Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com. (da Fonseca-Wollheim)
