From NYTimes.com:

Steven Bernstein at the Stone (Tuesday through Oct. 27) The trumpeter-bandleader-arranger Steven Bernstein will take over the Stone next week, making himself right at home. On Tuesday he plays music from his “Diaspora” album series, with the saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum, the pianist Arturo O’Farrill, the bassist Brad Jones and the drummer Billy Martin. On Wednesday (and Oct. 26) he leads his band Sex Mob; on Thursday (and next Friday) he scrambles his Millennial Territory Orchestra. At 8 and 10 p.m., Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com; $15 per set, $10 for students. (Chinen)

Erik Friedlander at the Stone (Friday through Sunday) Mr. Friedlander is a cellist with a soulful and expressive style, and he has done uniformly strong work in recent years. He has been in residence at the Stone this week; among the remaining highlights is an album-release performance of “NightHawks,” featuring his band Bonebridge, on Saturday. At 8 and 10 p.m., the Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com; $15 per set, $10 for students. (Chinen)

Tony Malaby Reading Band (Saturday) The tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby has a burly but beseeching tone, and in his own bands he often pushes toward an amiable ruckus. His name for this quartet suggests that he’ll be introducing new material on the bandstand — which wouldn’t be a setback, given the adaptive grace of its lineup, with the trumpeter Ralph Alessi, the bassist Drew Gress and the drummer Billy Drummond. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., the Jazz Gallery at Salt Space, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street, (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $20, $10 for members. (Chinen)

Tom Rainey Trio (Saturday) Tom Rainey is a starkly suggestive drummer who recently formed this working trio with Ingrid Laubrock, a tenor and soprano saxophonist adept with abrasive strategies, and Mary Halvorson, a young guitarist with a sharp-splintered but flexible attack. “Camino Cielo Echo” (Intakt), the trio’s rewarding second album, captures some of the forceful expressivity it’s sure to demonstrate here. 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)

Henry Threadgill’s Zooid (Friday) The multireedist Henry Threadgill has long been one of the most thrillingly elusive composers in and around the jazz idiom, specializing in bristling counterpoint, unconventional timbres, and tough but slippery rhythms. Zooid, his band, has Jose Davila on tuba and trombone, Christopher Hoffman on cello, Liberty Ellman on guitar and Elliot Kavee on drums. It performs here under the aegis of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, which counts Mr. Threadgill as a charter member. At 8 p.m., Community Church of New York, 40 East 35th Street, Manhattan; aacm-newyork.com; $30, $15 for students. (Chinen)
