Marc Ribot at the Stone (Friday through Sunday) Marc Ribot, whose persuasively prickly guitar playing has long been a protean feature of the downtown scene, has been in residence at the Stone this week, seeking revelation with a series of partners. On Friday, he plays an 8 p.m. set with voice and guitar, featuring a full band, and at the same time on Saturday he will perform a solo set for voice and guitar. A 10 p.m. set on Friday will feature the bassist Henry Grimes, the drummer Chad Taylor and his fellow guitarist Mary Halvorson; at 10 p.m. on Saturday he’ll work with Mr. Grimes, Mr. Taylor and the multi-instrumentalist Cooper-Moore. Sunday’s early set will be outsourced to a John Zorn improv party (with a $25 cover charge); at 10 p.m. that night, Mr. Ribot will play Mr. Zorn’s “Book of Heads” and John Cage’s “Some of the Harmony of Maine.” The Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com; $15 per set, $10 for students.

Matt Wilson Quartet with John Medeski (Friday through Sunday) The drummer and bandleader Matt Wilson has long held fast to a value system that prizes simplicity and sincerity, rugged effort and sturdy design. He has a new album, “Gathering Call,” that augments his quartet — featuring the cornetist Kirk Knuffke, the saxophonist Jeff Lederer and the bassist Chris Lightcap — with a guest pianist, John Medeski, who fits right in, just as he should here. 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 to $45 cover, with a $10 minimum; $20 to $25 for students. (Chinen)
