From NYTimes.com:

The Bad Plus (Tuesday through July 21) Few groups in the greater jazz orbit sound more doggedly intrepid than the Bad Plus, which flirted with electronic textures on “Made Possible” (eOne), released last fall. The band — Reid Anderson on bass, Ethan Iverson on piano, David King on drums — has recently collaborated with sympathetic interlopers, notably the guitarist Bill Frisell. But this run, taking place on familiar footing, will simply feature the trio in all its lean, concussive glory. At 9 and 11 p.m., Village Vanguard, 178 Seventh Avenue South, at 11th Street, West Village, (212) 255-4037, villagevanguard.com; $25 cover, with a one-drink minimum. (Chinen)

Ingrid Laubrock’s Anti-House (Thursday) The saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock this year released “Strong Place” (Intakt), her fine second album with the restless unit she calls Anti-House. Here she re-engages with improvisers just as resourceful with texture as she is: the guitarist Mary Halvorson, the pianist Kris Davis, the bassist Sean Conly and the drummer Tom Rainey. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $20 cover includes one drink. (Chinen)

Sound It Out 1st Anniversary Hot House Festival (Thursday through July 21) For the last year, the Sound It Out concert series, founded by the music journalist Bradley Bambarger, has been a beacon of adventurous programming in Greenwich Village. To celebrate its first anniversary, the series will run four consecutive nights, beginning on Thursday with three brief performances: a duo by the drummer David King and the saxophonist Chris Speed (at 7 p.m.); another duo, with the pianist Russ Lossing and the bassist John Hébert (at 8 p.m.); and a set by Futuredrone, led by the drummer Joe Hertenstein and featuring the violist Mat Maneri, the pianist Anthony Coleman and the bassist Ken Filiano (at 9 p.m.) At 8 p.m., Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, West Village, (212) 242-4770, greenwichhouse.org; $20 per night.

The Post-Jazz Jazz of John Hollenbeck

From the New Republic:

John Hollenbeck has the power to induce synesthesia. A precociously gifted but still underappreciated composer, arranger, percussionist, and leader of several musical groups of varying sizes and orientations, Hollenbeck makes music that sounds the way the world looks and feels in 2013. You can hear, in his work, the collapse of cultural borders, the shuffling of traditions and influences, the old and the new and the earthy and the urban and the proper and the wiseass, swirling in unstable but unstoppable motion. Hollenbeck is a musician for our time, our hour of seemingly (but not really) limitless access and crumbling (but obstinately enduring) classifications. If you haven’t heard his music yet, you have certainly seen and felt what it sounds like, every day.
