Jazz Listings From The New York Times

From NYTimes.com:

Harris Eisenstadt’s Golden State (Thursday) A venturesome drummer and composer, Mr. Eisenstadt likes to walk the line between free-form exploration and meticulous composition, and this texture-rich new ensemble — with the flutist Nicole Mitchell, the bassoonist Sara Schoenbeck and the bassist Mark Dresser — should suit that purpose handily. (Mr. Dresser will perform an improvised solo set at 7:30 p.m..) At 8:15 p.m., Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, West Village, (212) 242-4770; facebook.com/sounditoutnyc/events; $15, $10 for students. (Chinen)

Orrin Evans (Friday through Sunday) The pianist Orrin Evans often works in combustible settings, but the title of his new album, “… It Was Beauty” (Criss Cross), signals a subtle shift in intention. He revisits that premise with two different groups this weekend, starting on Friday with a trio featuring the drummer Karriem Riggins and the bassist Eric Revis. On Saturday and Sunday he leads a quintet with Mr. Revis, the trumpeter Ralph Alessi, the alto saxophonist Greg Osby and the drummer Donald Edwards. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., with an 11:30 p.m. set on Friday and Saturday, Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, Manhattan, (212) 576-2232, jazzstandard.net; $25 and $30. (Chinen)

Peter Evans at the Stone (Tuesday through Sept. 15) Peter Evans is a trumpeter with a dizzying command of timbre and texture, and he isn’t afraid to clobber you with it. His residency at the Stone next week will include solo manifestoes (Tuesday at 8 p.m.); electropunk improv with the collective trio called Pulverize the Sound (Wednesday at 8 p.m.); slashing duologue with a fellow trumpeter, Joe McPhee (Thursday at 8 p.m.); and the intrepid fire of his Zebulon Trio, with the drummer Kassa Overall and the bassist John Hébert (Thursday at 10 p.m.). At 8 and 10 p.m., Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com; $15 for each set, $10 for students. (Chinen)

Festival of New Trumpet Music (Tuesday through Oct. 2) This annual hornucopia founded by Dave Douglas kicks off on Tuesday at Roulette in Brooklyn, with a pair of new works by the experimental classical composer Christian Wolff and the free-bop trumpeter Roy Campbell Jr. Happening in the same space on Wednesday is the New York premiere of a piece for 52 trumpets by the composer Henry Brant; the preview performance of a piece by John Zorn; and a posthumous tribute to the trumpeter and pioneering conductor Butch Morris. A full schedule is at fontmusic.org. At 8 p.m., Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue, near Third Avenue, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, (917) 267-0363, roulette.org, fontmusic.org; $20, $15 for students. (Chinen)

Tomas Fujiwara Trio (Wednesday) 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 works here in an exploratory trio featuring the trumpeter Ralph Alessi and the guitarist Brandon Seabrook. At 8 p.m., Barbès, 376 Ninth Street, at Sixth Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn, (347) 422-0248, barbesbrooklyn.com; $10 cover. (Chinen)

Larry Ochs at the Stone (Friday through Sunday) The tenor and soprano saxophonist Larry Ochs is probably best known for his founding role in the Rova Saxophone Quartet, a new-music ensemble with more than 30 years of performing experience. He concludes his residency at the Stone this weekend. At 8 and 10 p.m., Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com; $15 for each set, $10 for students. (Chinen)

Marc Ribot/Matana Roberts / Cian Nugent (Thursday) As part of the 10-year anniversary celebration for Issue Project Room, each of these affiliated artists offers a small-scale but boundary-erasing performance. Mr. Ribot, the guitarist, will perform unaccompanied, though it’s entirely possible he’ll find grounds for collaboration with Ms. Roberts, an alto saxophonist, and Mr. Nugent, another guitarist. At 8 p.m., Issue Project Room, 22 Boerum Place, at Livingston Street, Downtown Brooklyn, (718) 330-0313, issueprojectroom.org; $15, $12 for members and students. (Chinen)

Sex Mob Residency (Thursday through Sept. 14) Sex Mob, the rugged and irreverent quartet led by the slide trumpeter Steven Bernstein — also with Briggan Krauss on alto saxophone, Tony Scherr on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums — will play three nights at ShapeShifter Lab next week, pairing with a different opening act each night. On Thursday it will be Cuddle Magic, a songwriting collective in Brooklyn. At 8:15 and 9:30 p.m., ShapeShifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn, shapeshifterlab.com; $15 each day; three-day pass, $30; $12 for students. (Chinen)

Trio M (Friday) The pianist Myra Melford, the bassist Mark Dresser and the drummer Matt Wilson usually make up Trio M, a collective with a clear bead on the free jazz legacy of the 1960s. For this one-nighter, Michael Sarin fills in for Mr. Wilson. At 8 and 10 p.m., Jazz at Kitano, 66 Park Avenue at 38th Street, (212) 885-7119, kitano.com; $25 cover, with a $15 minimum. (Chinen)
