Matt Bauder and Day in Pictures (Wednesday) On “Nightshades,” his soulful new album, the tenor saxophonist Matt Bauder emulates an ideal of midcentury jazz modernism, without abandoning an exploratory air. His partners, in the group he calls Day in Pictures, are the trumpeter Nate Wooley, the pianist Kris Davis, the bassist Jason Ajemian and the drummer Tomas Fujiwara. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, corneliastreetcafe.com, 212-989-9319; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Tomas Fujiwara & the Hook Up (Saturday) 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’s preparing to record his third album with this smart band, which features the trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson, the saxophonist Brian Settles, the guitarist Mary Halvorson and the bassist Michael Formanek. 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)

Dave Holland’s Prism (Sunday) The bassist-bandleader Dave Holland digs back into knockabout jazz-funk mode with “Prism,” his potent most recent album, which features a famous old colleague, the guitarist Kevin Eubanks, along with the brilliant pianist Craig Taborn and the indomitable drummer Eric Harland. At 8 p.m., Highline Ballroom, 431 West 16th Street, Chelsea, 212-414-5994, highlineballroom.com; $29.50 in advance, $35 day of show; $55 for V.I.P. seating; $10 minimum per person at tables.

William Hooker: ‘Body and Soul’ (Thursday) Mr. Hooker, a drummer aligned with the combative free-jazz lineage, performs a live accompaniment to the 1925 Oscar Micheaux film “Body and Soul,” which introduced Paul Robeson to the screen. His musical partners will include the saxophonist Ras Moshe and the violinist Skye Steele. At 7:30 p.m., David Rubinstein Atrium, Lincoln Center, Broadway, between 62nd and 63rd Streets, atrium.lincolncenter.org; free. (Chinen)

Paradoxical Frog (Saturday) “Union,” released in 2012, was a fitting title for the second album by this fearless experimental trio, which interrogates compositions by all three members — the pianist Kris Davis, the saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and the drummer Tyshawn Sorey. The ensemble has not performed in almost a year, but should have no problem reconnecting during this concert, part of the Sound It Out series. At 8 p.m., Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, West Village, 212-242-4770, greenwichhouse.org; $15, $12 for students. (Chinen)
