A selected guide to jazz performances in New York City.

Chris Dingman Subliminal Trio (Friday) Mr. Dingman, a vibraphonist and composer drawn to softly luminous effect, has a chamberlike new album, “The Subliminal and the Sublime,” inspired by nature — with an eye toward both the grandeur and the granular. This trio features two core members of its cast: the pianist Fabian Almazan and the guitarist Ryan Ferreira. At 10:30 p.m., ShapeShifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn, shapeshifterlab.com. (Chinen)
Go: Organic Orchestra (Sunday) The percussionist and composer Adam Rudolph has an endlessly pliable outlet in the Go: Organic Orchestra, a (very) large ensemble trained to execute his ideas, and stocked with improvisers like the multireedist Ned Rothenberg and the cornetist Graham Haynes. This is the conclusion of a monthlong residency at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. At 7:30 p.m., Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, 58 Seventh Avenue, at Lincoln Place, Park Slope, Brooklyn, 718-622-3300, bqcm.org. (Chinen)
Jon Irabagon Quartet (Wednesday) Jon Irabagon has two new albums arriving in a couple of weeks: “Inaction is An Action,” an often starkly abrasive solo recital played on sopranino saxophone; and “Behind the Sky,” a reflective, melodic post-bop affair for a small group. This one-nighter focuses more on the second option — though perhaps not to the exclusion of the first — with a band featuring the pianist Matt Mitchell, the bassist Chris Lightcap and the drummer Nasheet Waits. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, Manhattan, 212-576-2232, jazzstandard.net. (Chinen)
Mario Pavone: ‘Blue Dialect’ (Sunday and Monday) The rock-solid yet deeply exploratory bassist Mario Pavone has an excellent new album, “Blue Dialect,” featuring his trio with Matt Mitchell on piano and Tyshawn Sorey on drums. The group draws from the album in this engagement, joined (on Sunday only) by Dave Ballou on trumpet and Ellery Eskelin on tenor saxophone. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, 212-989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com. (Chinen)
