Jazz Listings From The New York Times

From NYTimes.com:

Connie Crothers at the Stone (through Sunday) Ms. Crothers, a restless but reflective pianist, has been in residence this week at the Stone, enlisting a wide array of collaborators. Among the remaining highlights are a pair of sets on Saturday featuring the saxophonist Richard Tabnik and the bassist Ken Filiano, among others; and a duo set at 8 p.m. on Sunday featuring Pauline Oliveros on electronics and accordion. At 8 and 10 p.m., Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com; $15 per set, $10 for students. (Chinen)

Dave Douglas Quintet (Friday and Saturday) The industrious trumpeter-composer Dave Douglas broke in a terrific new band last year, releasing two albums on his own Greenleaf label: “Be Still,” a contemplative recasting of Protestant hymns, and “Time Travel,” a more rambunctious postbop outing. The quintet — with Jon Irabagon on saxophones, Matt Mitchell on piano, Linda Oh on bass and Rudy Royston on drums — will most likely draw from both releases here. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080, birdlandjazz.com; $40 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Ben Goldberg’s ‘Unfold Ordinary Mind’ (Monday) Mr. Goldberg is a clarinetist of range and curiosity, and on his recent album, “Unfold Ordinary Mind,” he enlists collaborators of equal temperament, beginning with the guitarist Nels Cline and the drummer Ches Smith. They reconnect here, as part of the Sound It Out series, in a band that also features Rob Sudduth and Kasey Knudsen on saxophones. At 8 p.m., Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, West Village, 212-242-4770, greenwichhouse.org; $20, $15 for students. (Chinen)

Jon Irabagon Quartet (Thursday) A smart young saxophonist who has successfully ducked in and out of the mainstream jazz tradition, Jon Irabagon leads a postbop unit with Luis Perdomo on piano, Yasushi Nakamura on bass and Rudy Royston on drums. They’ll draw from a forthcoming album, which also features the trumpeter Tom Harrell, and is due out early next year. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Mostly Other People Do the Killing (Wednesday) This impudent but wickedly proficient free-bop quartet — led by the bassist Moppa Elliott, with Jon Irabagon on saxophones, Kevin Shea on drums and, as part of its new lineup, Ron Stabinsky on piano — has never lacked for an animating concept. “Blue,” due out in October, is its painstaking attempt at a note-for-note re-creation of the Miles Davis album “Kind of Blue,” with a liner note essay by Jorge Luis Borges. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)
