From NYTimes.com:

Ethan Iverson-Sam Newsome Duo (Friday) Sam Newsome has lately made a specialty out of the soprano saxophone solo recital, working with original material as well as music by the titan of that format, Steve Lacy. He teams up here with Mr. Iverson, the pianist in the Bad Plus and a serious student of jazz history; their rapport is sure to make knowing allusion to Lacy’s work with the pianist Mal Waldron. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $25 cover, includes one drink. (Chinen)

Ingrid Laubrock Orchestra (Wednesday) Ingrid Laubrock is a tenor and soprano saxophonist of experimental temperament, and during her relatively brief time in New York she has rallied many partners to her cause. In this ensemble she gathers a select handful of them: the guitarist Mary Halvorson, the pianist Kris Davis, the trumpeter Shane Endsley, the accordionist Ted Reichman, the cellist Chris Hoffman, the bassist Drew Gress and the drummer Tom Rainey. At 8 and 10 p.m., the Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com; $10 cover. (Chinen)

Greg Ward’s Phonic Juggernaut (Thursday) “Phonic Juggernaut” (Thirsty Ear) is the potent new album by Mr. Ward, a versatile and enterprising alto saxophonist from Chicago; it’s also the name of this flexible band, with Joe Sanders on bass and Damion Reid on drums. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village, (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $15 cover, or $10 for members in the first set; $10 cover, or $5 for members in the second set.
