The Bad Plus (through Sunday) An acoustic piano trio with a collectivist heart, the Bad Plus holds fast to the idea of a group identity, essential and inviolable. Last year the band released an excellent album with a respectful interloper, the saxophonist Joshua Redman, but here the lineup will strictly feature core members: the pianist Ethan Iverson, the bassist Reid Anderson and the drummer David King. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, Manhattan, 212-576-2232, (Nate Chinen)

Crump/Lee/Maneri Trio (Tuesday) A string trio rooted in equilateral exchange and a pliability of timbre and texture, with Stephan Crump on bass, Okkyung Lee on cello and Mat Maneri on violin. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., the Jazz Gallery, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street, 646-494-3625, (Chinen)

David Krakauer’s Ancestral Groove (Friday) On his lively new album, “Checkpoint,” the clarinetist David Krakauer continues an investigation into his Eastern European Jewish roots, melding a klezmer wail with funk, jazz and electronics. This concert will likewise feature Ancestral Groove, his band with Sheryl Bailey on guitar, the artist known as Keepalive on sampler, Jerome Harris on bass and Michael Sarin on drums. At 7 p.m., National Sawdust, 80 North Sixth Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 646-779-8455, (Chinen)

Pharoah Sanders Quartet (through Saturday) Mr. Sanders, 75, was one of several artists recognized early this week as a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master. He has since been in residence at Birdland, supporting his ecstatic, gruffly spiritual style with a muscular rhythm team: the pianist William Henderson, the bassist Nat Reeves and the drummer Greg Bandy. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080, (Chinen)

John Scofield Quartet Featuring John Medeski (through Sunday) The guitarist John Scofield has never met a groove he couldn’t finesse, whether in the context of groovy post-bop or slinky R&B. His marquee collaborator here, Mr. Medeski, is the keyboardist in Medeski Martin & Wood, with whom Mr. Scofield has joined forces often over the last 20 years. At 8 and 10:30 p.m., Blue Note, 131 West Third Street, Greenwich Village, 212-475-8592, (Chinen)
