From NYTimes.com:

Peter Evans Trio (Sunday and Monday) Peter Evans, a trumpeter with a dazzlingly expressive command of timbre and texture, marshals a trio with John Hébert on bass and Kassa Overall on drums. At 8 p.m., Zebulon, 258 Wythe Avenue, near North Third Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, (718) 218-6934, zebuloncafeconcert.com; no cover. (Chinen)

Mary Halvorson Septet (Saturday) The guitarist Mary Halvorson has gradually been expanding her palette as a bandleader-composer: her first two albums on Firehouse 12 featured a trio and a quintet respectively, and “Bending Bridges,” due out in May, will involve this septet. The ensemble features Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Greg Ward and Ingrid Laubrock on saxophones and Jacob Garchik on trombone, along with the other members of her trio, the bassist John Hébert and the drummer Tom Rainey. Its presentation here is part of an American Mavericks Festival, organized by Nick Hallett; the concert will also feature “Instrumentals,” a 1975 piece by Arthur Russell, performed by a chamber ensemble. At 8 p.m., the Kitchen, 512 West 19th Street, Chelsea, (212) 255-5793, thekitchen.org; $15. (Chinen)

Curtis Hasselbring’s Decoupage (Wednesday) As the name implies, this improvising chamber group presents a study in artful layers: Mr. Hasselbring’s trombone, Matt Moran’s vibraphone, Satoshi Takeishi’s percussion and Mary Halvorson’s guitar. The ensemble’s set, at 8:30 p.m., will precede a 10 p.m. set by the inventive young Cuban pianist David Virelles, with a trio. At Seeds, 617 Vanderbilt Avenue, Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, seedsbrooklyn.org; $10 suggested cover. (Chinen)

Mark Helias’s Open Loose (Friday) Mark Helias is a bassist equally committed to the causes of momentum and texture, and in that sense he has a very good thing in Open Loose, a band with Tony Malaby on tenor saxophone and Tom Rainey on drums. 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)
