From The New York Times:

Joel Harrison 5 (Friday and Saturday) The guitarist and composer Joel Harrison has a thoughtful and unclassifiable new album, “Spirit House,” that explores an instrumental palette including trumpet and bassoon. He celebrates the album’s release this weekend with a near approximation of its lineup: Ralph Alessi on trumpet, Peter Apfelbaum on woodwinds, Kermit Driscoll on bass and Brian Blade on drums. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com. (Chinen)

Gerry Hemingway at the Stone (through Sunday) Mr. Hemingway is a drummer and composer with a gift for illuminating abstract principles, and he has organized his residency at the Stone as a kind of retrospective. Among the highlights of his closing weekend are an 8 p.m. set on Friday with Brew Trio, featuring Miya Masaoka on koto and Reggie Workman on bass; a quartet performance at 10 p.m. on Saturday, with the trumpeter Herb Robertson, the saxophonist Ellery Eskelin and the bassist Mark Helias; an 8 p.m. set on Sunday by Trio New York, with Mr. Eskelin and the organist Gary Versace; and a finale at 10 p.m. on Sunday with BassDrumBone, a long-running trio with Mr. Helias and the trombonist Ray Anderson. At 8 and 10 p.m., the Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com. (Chinen)

Ingrid Laubrock (Friday and Saturday) Ms. Laubrock is a saxophonist and composer with a taste for sonic provocation, and she has had unerring taste in collaborators since moving to New York from Europe within the last decade. She’ll present a single new commission for two wildly different ensembles this weekend, starting on Friday with two close partners, the guitarist Mary Halvorson and the pianist Kris Davis. Saturday’s group will favor more chamberlike dimensions, with Vincent Chancey on French horn, Michael Formanek and Eivind Opsvik on basses, and Tom Rainey, Ms. Laubrock’s husband, on drums. At 8 and 10 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street, Manhattan, 646-494-3625, jazzgallery.org. (Chinen)

Matt Pavolka’s Horns Band (Monday) The chief expressive outlet for the bassist Matt Pavolka, the Horns Band puts a rugged twist on post-bop protocols. On this occasion its lineup features Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Loren Stillman on alto saxophone, Jacob Garchik on trombone and Tom Rainey on drums. At 7:30 p.m., Smalls Jazz Club, 183 West 10th Street, West Village, smallsjazzclub.com. (Chinen)
