English: Tyshawn Sorey at moers festival 2010

From The New York Times:

Ingrid Laubrock, Kris Davis, Tyshawn Sorey (Saturday) “Union,” released a few years ago, was a fitting title for the second album by this fearless experimental trio, which also goes by the name Paradoxical Frog. The group typically interrogates compositions by all three members: Ms. Laubrock, a saxophonist, Ms. Davis, a pianist, and Mr. Sorey, a drummer. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com. (Chinen)

John Scofield Trio (Tuesday through July 11) The guitarist John Scofield has a lot of history with the bassist Steve Swallow and the drummer Bill Stewart, who make up this propulsive and unpredictable trio. Their most recent album together — “EnRoute,” from just over a decade ago — was recorded live in a New York club, on an engagement much like this one. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080, birdlandjazz.com. (Chinen)

This year’s programming begins on Sunday, with a pair of related films at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue, East Village. On Monday a symposium and panel titled “Improvising Agency For Change: Celebrating 20 Years of Vision Festival,” with speakers including the poet Nathaniel Mackey and the pianist Vijay Iyer, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Buell Hall at Columbia University, 515 West 116th Street.
