From NYTimes.com:

‘The Cartographies of Flight’ (Friday) Marty Ehrlich, a forward-thinking multireedist, has organized this tribute to Charlie Parker with an emphasis on poetic syntax. Charles Bernstein and Erica Hunt, writers associated with the language poetry movement, will perform with Mr. Ehrlich’s band, consisting of musicians adept at shifting the balance between form and content: the trumpeter James Zollar, the guitarist Marc Ribot, the bassist Michael Formanek and the drummer Nasheet Waits. At 8:30 p.m., Tribeca Performing Arts Center, Borough of Manhattan Community College, 199 Chambers Street, near Greenwich Street, (212) 220-1460, tribecapac.org; $25, $15 for students. (Chinen)

Jonathan Finlayson and Sicilian Defense (Friday) Jonathan Finlayson is an incisive and often surprising trumpeter, as he has demonstrated in groups led by the daring alto saxophonist Steve Coleman. “Moment and the Message” (Pi) is his long-awaited debut album, featuring the band he calls Sicilian Defense: the pianist David Virelles, the guitarist Miles Okazaki, the bassist Keith Witty and the drummer Damion Reid. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery at Salt Space, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street, (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $20, $10 for members. (Chinen)

Why Roscoe Mitchell is Important to the Rova Sax Quartet

Rova Saxophone Quartet

From Table & Chairs, why Mitchell is important:

Rova Saxophone Quartet (comprised of Steve Adams, Larry Ochs, Jon Raskin and Bruce Ackley) explores the synthesis of composition and collective improvisation, creating exciting, genre-bending music that challenges and inspires. Rova began, in 1978, writing new material, touring, and recording, including early collaborations with such like-minded colleagues as guitarists Henry Kaiser and Fred Frith, and saxophonist John Zorn. Rova is one of the longest-standing groups in the music movement that has its roots in post-bop, free jazz, avant-rock, and 20th century new music, and draws inspiration from the visual arts and from the traditional and popular music styles of Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States.

Nate Wooley (Thursday) When this brilliant avant-garde trumpeter played part of his “Seven Storey Mountain” at Issue Project Room last year, he used a trumpet without a mouthpiece, amplifying it to create breathy, lightly pitched, sometimes squawking, sometimes almost spoken sounds that whispered over a dense shimmer of other instruments. He returns to the space with the mesmerizing work’s most complete iteration yet. At 8 p.m., 22 Boerum Place, at Livingston Street, downtown Brooklyn, (718) 330-0313, issueprojectroom.org; $10, $8 for students. (Woolfe)
