From The New York Times:

Michaël Attias IBeam Residency (through Sunday) Mr. Attias is a saxophonist and composer of investigative bent, and he’s exploring a few different avenues during his residency at IBeam. Highlights include a performance with the Anthony Coleman Trio (Friday at 8:30 p.m.); a freely improvised set with the bassist Sean Conly and the drummer Tom Rainey (Saturday at 8:30 p.m.); and two sets with his ensemble Spun Tree, featuring Mr. Conly, Mr. Rainey, the trumpeter Ralph Alessi and the pianist Matt Mitchell (Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 p.m.) 168 Seventh Street, Gowanus, Brooklyn, ibeambrooklyn.com. (Chinen)

40Twenty (Wednesday through July 25) The collective known as 40Twenty — Jacob Sacks on piano, Jacob Garchik on trombone, Dave Ambrosio on bass and Vinnie Sperrazza on drums — explores an intersection of buoyant swing, rugged counterpoint and complex harmony. The band settles in for four nights at Seeds, an intimate, artist-run space in Brooklyn. At 8:30 p.m., 617 Vanderbilt Avenue, at St. Marks Avenue, Prospect Heights, seedsbrooklyn.org. (Chinen)

Jacob Garchik’s Ye Olde (Monday) Mr. Garchik is a trombonist, composer and arranger brimming with bright ideas, and on “Ye Olde,” an album due out this fall, he imagines a heavy-metal soundtrack to a faux-medieval tale set in Flatbush, Brooklyn. As on the album, which works better than that description might suggest, he appears here with the drummer Vinnie Sperrazza and three texture-mad guitarists: Jonathan Goldberger, Mary Halvorson and Brandon Seabrook. At 7:30 p.m., Joe’s Pub, at the Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, at Astor Place, East Village; 212-967-7555, joespub.com. (Chinen)

Jenny Scheinman (Tuesday through July 26) Ms. Scheinman, a violinist of deep lyrical gifts, has lately put emphasis on her singer-songwriter side in a way that suggests a continuity rather than a departure. Still, her return to chamberesque improvised music at the Village Vanguard next week is a welcome turn of events, especially given her choice of partners: the clarinetist and saxophonist Doug Wieselman, the pianist Myra Melford and the drummer Rudy Royston. At 8:30 and 10:30 p.m., 178 Seventh Avenue South, at 11th Street, West Village, 212-255-4037, villagevanguard.com. (Chinen)

Henry Threadgill’s Zooid (through Sunday) Mr. Threadgill, who at 71 is still a blazingly original composer, bandleader, alto saxophonist and flutist, has an assuredly spiky new album — “In for a Penny, In for a Pound,” a suite on two discs — that showcases the oblique cohesion of Zooid, his longtime chamber-improv band. The group sets up shop at Village Vanguard, as it did to momentous effect around this time last year. At 8:30 and 10:30 p.m., 178 Seventh Avenue South, at 11th Street, West Village, 212-255-4037, villagevanguard.com. (Chinen)
