From the Times:
AACM AT THE KITCHEN (Thursday) The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, a new-music organization established in Chicago more than 40 years ago, has lately been celebrating the publication of an important book by George E. Lewis: “A Power Stronger Than Itself: The AACM and American Experimental Music” (University of Chicago Press). This concert, loosely tied to the book, features the association’s founder, the pianist Muhal Richard Abrams, and one of its first female inductees, the pianist Amina Claudine Myers, along with an ensemble called Wet Ink; they will perform works by association members, which hardly limits their options. At 8 p.m., the Kitchen, 512 West 19th Street, Chelsea, (212) 255-5793, thekitchen.org; $10. (Nate Chinen)
DAVE HOLLAND SEXTET (Wednesday and Thursday) On “Pass It On” (Emarcy), his crisply energetic new album, the bassist Dave Holland unveils a batch of compositions for this high-polish ensemble, with the trumpeter Alex Sipiagin, the saxophonist Antonio Hart, the trombonist Robin Eubanks, the pianist Mulgrew Miller and the drummer Eric Harland. (Through Oct. 11.) At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, (212) 581-3080, birdlandjazz.com; cover, $30 and $40, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)
SUSIE IBARRA AND ROBERTO RODRIGUEZ (Saturday) Ms. Ibarra is a drummer with a passion for texture and abstraction, and a composer committed to the idea of cultural exchange. “Electric Kulintang,” her percussive collaboration with Mr. Rodriguez, adds a contemporary sheen to the chiming kulintang music of the Philippines. At 7:30 p.m., Joe’s Pub, at the Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, at Astor Place, East Village, (212) 539-8778, joespub.com; cover, $15, with a two-drink minimum.
EIVIND OPSVIK OVERSEAS (Sunday) Eivind Opsvik is a bassist with an experimental streak but also a deep connection to melody, as he demonstrates with this working band, which includes Tony Malaby on tenor saxophone, Jacob Sacks on keyboards and Kenny Wollesen on drums. At 9:30 p.m., 55 Bar, 55 Christopher Street, West Village, (212) 929-9883, 55bar.com; cover, $10. (Chinen)
? REGGIE WORKMAN (Friday) Mr. Workman is a bassist of broad experience and deep intuition, and he has the benefit of group rapport here: his partners are the alto saxophonist Oliver Lake and the drummer Andrew Cyrille, with whom he has recorded and toured as the avant-garde supergroup Trio 3. At 7 p.m., Rubin Museum of Art, 150 West 17th Street, Chelsea, (212) 620-5000, Ext. 344, rmanyc.org; $20. (Chinen)
