Dave Holland (Tuesday through Feb. 21) During the early and mid-1990s, the bassist Dave Holland had an inspired younger partner in Kevin Eubanks, a guitar virtuoso with fluency in myriad styles. They parted ways for a while — Mr. Eubanks to “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” and Mr. Holland to a series of acclaimed bands and albums — but reunited a few years ago, to strong effect. Next week they’ll be working in a trio with Obed Calvaire, a smartly assertive drummer. At 8:30 and 10:30 p.m., Village Vanguard, 178 Seventh Avenue South, West Village, 212-255-4037, villagevanguard.com. (Chinen)
Darius Jones at the Stone (Tuesday through Feb. 21) The alto saxophonist Darius Jones favors a robust and personal take on post-1960s free jazz, and he’s an artist brimming with ideas, many of which will surface here. Highlights include Cosmic Lieder, his duo with the pianist Matthew Shipp, at 8 p.m. on Tuesday; a quintet with a front line featuring Jason Stein on bass clarinet and Ben Gerstein on trombone, at 10 p.m. on Tuesday; and D’ Troy-t Alchemy, a new project involving Marty McCavitt on electronics, at 8 p.m. on Wednesday and 10 p.m. on Thursday. Full details are online. Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com. (Chinen)
Dan Weiss Large Ensemble (Friday and Saturday) The drummer Dan Weiss recently discovered his aptitude for large-format composing. “Sixteen: Drummers Suite,” due out later this month, is an ambitious work obliquely inspired by six of his jazz-drumming touchstones — its movements bear titles like “Elvin” and “Philly Joe” — for the improvising chamber orchestra he leads here. Its ranks include some important figures in the contemporary avant-garde, like the vocalists Jen Shyu and Judith Berkson, the guitarist Miles Okazaki and the pianists Matt Mitchell and Jacob Sacks. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., the Jazz Gallery, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street, 646-494-3625, jazzgallery.org. (Chinen)
