Holus-Bolus / Flood Fathers / D’Angelo Sax 4tet (Friday) A boisterously intelligent triple bill, featuring three bands spearheaded by saxophonists. Holus-Bolus, appearing at 10 p.m., is a project of the baritone saxophonist and clarinetist Josh Sinton, with guitar, bass and drums; Flood Fathers, which plays at 8, features Patrick Breiner on tenor, with Chris Tordini on bass and Jim Black on drums.

Douglass Street Music Collective, 295 Douglass Street, near Third Avenue, Brooklyn , 295douglass.org; $10 suggested donation. (Chinen)

Vijay Iyer Trio / Robert Glasper Trio (Thursday) Vijay Iyer and Robert Glasper — both strong pianists and able bandleaders, both willful hybridizers, both hyperspecific about their borrowings — have emerged as two of the most distinctively accomplished voices of their jazz generation. The differences between their excellent trios come down to angles of attack. Mr. Iyer’s, with Stephan Crump on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums, favors flowing complexities and dark abstractions; Mr. Glasper’s, with Vicente Archer on bass and Chris Dave on drums, works with elusive permutations of groove. At 8 p.m., Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, 566 La Guardia Place, at Washington Square South, Greenwich Village , (212) 352-3101, skirballcenter.nyu.edu; $25 and $35. (Chinen)

Darius Jones and Matthew Shipp (Wednesday) Mr. Jones, a saxophonist, and Mr. Shipp, a pianist, share a connection to the post-1960s jazz avant-garde, along with an assertive and well-defined improvisational style. They also share the billing on “Cosmic Lieder” (Aum Fidelity), a rewarding new album from which they draw here. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, Manhattan , (212) 576-2232, jazzstandard.net; $20. (Chinen)

Mostly Other People Do the Killing (Friday) Led by the bassist Moppa Elliott, this impudent but wickedly proficient free-bop quartet has a vital new double album, “The Coimbra Concert,” on the Clean Feed label. The band’s especially dangerous frontline consists of the trumpeter Peter Evans and the saxophonist Jon Irabagon; its quick-flash drummer is Kevin Shea. At 8:30 p.m., Zebulon, 258 Wythe Avenue, near North Third Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn , (718) 218-6934, zebuloncafeconcert.com; no cover. (Chinen)

Orchestre National de Jazz / John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble (Monday) The Orchestre National de Jazz, an initiative of the French government now in its 25th year, presents “Shut Up and Dance” (Bee Jazz), a gleaming album inspired by kinetic movement and featuring commissioned works by John Hollenbeck. Sharing the concert bill is Mr. Hollenbeck and his flagship ensemble, with the guest vocalists Theo Bleckmann and Kate McGarry and a guest pianist, Uri Caine. At 7:30 p.m., Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, near Thompson Street, Greenwich Village , (212) 505-3474, lepoissonrouge.com; $15. (Chinen)

Steve Swallow, Ohad Talmor and Adam Nussbaum (Wednesday and Thursday) Steve Swallow, an electric bassist of elasticity and modernity, has worked well in recent years with the saxophonist Ohad Talmor, his frontman in this trio. Holding down percussive duties is the drummer Adam Nussbaum, a regular partner to them both. At 8 p.m., Iridium Jazz Club, 1650 Broadway, at 51st Street , (212) 582-2121, iridiumjazzclub.com; $25 and $30 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)
