From NYTimes.com:

Kris Davis Trio (Friday) An inquisitive pianist with a willful but methodical approach to experimentation, Kris Davis has made herself indispensable on New York’s left-of-center jazz scene in recent years. She has top-flight accompaniment here, from the bassist Michael Formanek and the drummer Nasheet Waits. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Harris Eisenstadt’s Canada Day (Saturday) A venturesome drummer and composer, Mr. Eisenstadt walks the line between free-form exploration and meticulous composition with Canada Day, featuring the trumpeter Nate Wooley, the saxophonist Matt Bauder, the vibraphonist Chris Dingman and the bassist Garth Stevenson. For this one-nighter the band previews material from its third album, “Canada Day III,” due out next month on Songlines. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Tomas Fujiwara and the Hook Up / Josh Sinton & Co. (Saturday) A drummer working along jazz’s experimental fringe, Mr. Fujiwara favors a mode of playing that’s forward-leaning but rarely blunt or aggressive, and never random. He recently released “The Air Is Different” (482 Music), his strong second album with this band, which features the trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson, the guitarist Mary Halvorson, the saxophonist Brian Settles and the bassist Trevor Dunn; the only substitution here is Michael Formanek, in for Mr. Dunn. The band plays at 8:30 p.m.; its 9:30 set will feature the baritone saxophonist Josh Sinton, with guests. At Douglass Street Music Collective, 295 Douglass Street, near Third Avenue, Gowanus, Brooklyn, 295douglass.org; $10 suggested donation. (Chinen)

Ingrid Laubrock’s Anti-House (Thursday) Ms. Laubrock is a tenor and soprano saxophonist of experimental temperament — the name of this band, with its flat negation of shelter, feels appropriate — and she knows how to rally other musicians to her cause. As on an eponymous album released on the Intakt label in 2010, the group includes the guitarist Mary Halvorson, the bassist John Hébert and the drummer Tom Rainey, with the pianist Kris Davis as a guest. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village, (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $15 cover, $10 for members in the first set, $10 and $5 in the second set. (Chinen)

Linda Oh Quartet (Tuesday) As on her propulsive, self-assured second album, “Initial Here” (Greenleaf), the bassist Linda Oh features her own compositions, and the occasional sacramental cover, for a slashing postbop quartet featuring the tenor saxophonist Dayna Stephens, the pianist Fabian Almazan and the drummer Rudy Royston. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, Manhattan, (212) 576-2232, jazzstandard.net; $20 cover. (Chinen)

Red Hook Jazz Festival (Sunday) This neighborly outdoor event is in its fifth year, and worth a look even for those whose only experience in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn involves prowling for Swedish furniture. Its lineup features bands inclined toward boisterous smarts: the Rick Parker Collective, Harris Eisenstadt’s Canada Day Octet, the Nate Wooley Quintet, Spoke and the Mike Baggetta Quartet. From 1 to 6 p.m., the Urban Meadow, at President and Van Brunt Streets, Brooklyn, urbanmeadowbrooklyn.blogspot.com; $10 suggested donation for adults, free for children. (Chinen)

David Torn’s Sun of Goldfinger (Tuesday) Mr. Torn, a guitarist and producer, leads a trio with two like-minded sonic adventurers, the alto saxophonist Tim Berne and the drummer Ches Smith. At 8:30 p.m., ShapeShifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn, shapeshifterlab.com; $15 at the door. (Chinen)

Vision Festival (Friday through Sunday) The final stretch of this avant-garde convocation features groups that reflect a searching ideal, in one form or another. Among the highlights are a duet between the trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith and the bassist Henry Grimes (Friday at 9:30 p.m.); a trio featuring the bassist Joëlle Léandre, the flutist Nicole Mitchell and the baritone Thomas Buckner (Saturday at 8:30 p.m.); Trio 3, an experienced wrecking crew featuring the saxophonist Oliver Lake, the bassist Reggie Workman and the drummer Andrew Cyrille (Saturday at 9:30 p.m.); Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, a large ensemble conducted by Greg Tate (Sunday at 7 p.m.); and a festival-closing set by the saxophonist Kidd Jordan, with an all-star band (Sunday at 9:30 p.m.) A full schedule is at artsforart.org. At Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue, near Third Avenue, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, (917) 267-0363, artsforart.org, roulette.org; $30 at the door, $35 in advance, $20 for students, $170 for a full festival pass.

Salim Washington-Darius Jones Quintet (Sunday) Physical exertion and spiritual uplift are a shared subtext for the multireedist Salim Washington and the alto saxophonist Darius Jones, who hail from different jazz eras. Their collaboration here holds promise not only for multigenerational reasons, but also for the catalytic properties of their assembled rhythm team: Jason Moran on piano, Mark Helias on bass and Tyshawn Sorey on drums. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village, (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $20 cover, $10 for members. (Chinen)
