From NYTimes.com:

Harris Eisenstadt’s Canada Day (Thursday) Mr. Eisenstadt, a venturesome drummer-composer, has a new album, “Canada Day II” (Clean Feed), featuring his sharp working band: the trumpeter Nate Wooley, the saxophonist Matt Bauder, the vibraphonist Chris Dingman and the bassist Garth Stevenson. For this show, presented by the free-jazz blog Destination Out, he adds a few compatible guests: the trombonist Ray Anderson, the tuba player Joe Daley and the multireedist Jason Mears. At 8 p.m., Salt Space, 1158 Broadway, at 27th Street, fifth floor , saltspacenyc.com; $10. (Chinen)

Evolving Voice / Evolving Music (Monday) This avant-garde series, an off-season outgrowth of the Vision Festival, has set up shop again on the Lower East Side. Anchoring the evening is Charles Gayle, the reliably fiery saxophonist, appearing at 9 p.m. with a trio called Forgiveness and then at 10 as the conductor of a small improvising orchestra. Vocalists will dominate earlier in the night, courtesy of sets by Jay Clayton and Theo Bleckmann (at 8) and Fay Victor (with the bassist Dominic Lash at 7). Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk Street, at Rivington Street, Lower East Side, visionfestival.org; $10 per set, $15 for two sets or $20 all night; $3 discount for students. (Chinen)

Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Gamak (Friday and Saturday) Mr. Mahanthappa, an alto saxophonist with a roving intellect and a bladelike articulation, presents the first performances of Gamak, an ensemble that seems likely to skew a bit toward fusion, given the featured role filled by the guitarist David Fiuczynski. Anchoring the group is a quick-reflex rhythm team, with François Moutin on bass and Dan Weiss on drums. Friday at 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, West Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $15, with a $10 minimum. Saturday at 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village , (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $20, or $10 for members. (Chinen)
