Mark Dresser Quintet (Friday) A master of abstract texture and extended techniques, the bassist Mark Dresser has an expressive new album, “Nourishments” (Clean Feed), that puts a hard spin on the postbop quintet language.

Peter Evans at the Stone (Friday through Sunday) Peter Evans is a trumpeter with a dizzying command of timbre and texture, and he isn’t afraid to clobber you with it.

On Saturday he’ll lead an octet that includes all of the above, along with Brandon Seabrook on guitar and banjo, Dan Peck on tuba and bass, and Ian Antonio on percussion. Sunday’s two shows will feature Rocket Science, with Mr. Pluta, the pianist Craig Taborn and the British saxophonist Evan Parker, who’ll begin his own residency at the club with the same group.

Oliver Lake Big Band (Tuesday) Oliver Lake, an alto saxophonist with a penetrating sound and an estimable stature in the post-’60s avant-garde, draws from his fine new album, “Wheels” (Passin’ Thru), with a stouthearted crew, including partners like the trumpeter Freddie Hendrix and the alto saxophonist Darius Jones. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, 60th Street and Broadway, (212) 258-9595, jalc.org; $35 cover, with a $10 minimum; $25 for students.

Matt Mitchell and Ches Smith (Saturday) Matt Mitchell, a hyperacute pianist recently heard to great effect in bands led by Tim Berne and Dave Douglas, is about to release “Fiction” (Pi Recordings), his own proper debut. It’s an unusual outing: a collection of self-invented études, often harrowingly complex, played in coordination with Ches Smith, the drummer in Mr. Berne’s quartet. This concert will feature the same book of music. At 8 p.m., Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, West Village, (212) 242-4770, greenwichhouse.org; $15, $12 for students. (Chinen)

Evan Parker at the Stone (Tuesday through Sept. 22) A titan of the British jazz avant-garde, and one of the leading saxophonists in his idiom anywhere, Mr. Parker will be in residence at the Stone next week, kicking off on Tuesday with a group called Rocket Science, with Peter Evans on trumpet, Craig Taborn on piano and Sam Pluta on electronics. On Wednesday Mr. Parker will interact with a different set of partners, including the drummer Tyshawn Sorey; on Thursday he’ll play an early set with the Bleeding Edge Trio, featuring Mr. Evans and the cellist Okkyung Lee, and a late set in duologue with the guitarist Han Earl Park.

Jenny Scheinman’s Mischief & Mayhem (Monday) Ms. Scheinman, a violinist, favors a style both folksy and exploratory, leaning a bit more to the latter with this working band, which draws here from a recent album. Her partners are the engagingly prickly guitarist Nels Cline, the stalwart bassist Todd Sickafoose and the polymorphically propulsive drummer Jim Black; playing an opening set, unaccompanied, is the effervescent young guitarist Julian Lage. At 6 p.m., Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, near Thompson Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 505-3474, lepoissonrouge.com; $15 in advance, $18 at the door. (Chinen)

76 Moments of Joseph Jarman (Sunday) Joseph Jarman, a multireedist and spiritual guide hailing from the first wave of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, will turn 76 this weekend, providing both a sense of occasion and a framing device for this concert. At 7 p.m. he’ll perform with the John Ehlis Ensemble, featuring Mr. Ehlis on guitar, Thurman Barker on drums and Douglass Ewart on woodwinds and spoken word. At 8:15 p.m., a small assembly of poets, including David Henderson and Thulani Davis, will pay homage to “Non-Cognitive Aspects of the City,” his interdisciplinary piece from the late ’60s. The final performance, at 9:30 p.m., will feature the Lifetime Visions Dojo Band, established by the pianist Chris Chalfant as an extension of Mr. Jarman’s practice as a Shinshu Buddhist priest. ShapeShifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn, shapeshifterlab.com; $15. (Chinen)

On Friday it’ll be the experimental trio Thiefs, and on Saturday it’ll be the singer-songwriter Shilpa Ray. At 8:15 and 9:30 p.m., 18 Whitwell Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn, shapeshifterlab.com; $15 each day, $12 for students. (Chinen)

Zorn @ 60: Masada Marathon (Sunday) If the output of any composer can be likened to a world, then John Zorn’s Masada is a sprawling continent, with its own richly varied climate, its own regional twists on a governing tongue. Among those traversing it here, as part of Mr. Zorn’s 60th birthday festivities, are the Masada String Trio and Electric Masada; the similarly committed ensembles Bar Kokhba and the Dreamers; the clarinetist David Krakauer; the cellist Erik Friedlander; and the experimental rock band Secret Chiefs 3. At 7 p.m., N.Y.U. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, 566 La Guardia Place, at Washington Square South, Greenwich Village, (866) 811-4111, nyuskirball.org; $35 to $60. (Chinen)
