STEVE COLEMAN 60TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION (through Sept. 25) Mr. Coleman, an alto saxophonist and composer, is one of the most rigorously conceptual thinkers in improvised music and a figure of acknowledged influence on the scene. His monthlong residency at the Stone mainly features his working band, Five Elements, but occasionally deviates to feature a project like Natal Eclipse, which appears Tuesday through Thursday, with collaborators including the pianist Matt Mitchell and the vocalist Jen Shyu. At 8 and 10 p.m., Avenue C and Second Street, East Village, thestonenyc.com. (Chinen)

COLTRANE REVISITED (Tuesday through Sept. 24) Timed to coincide with what would have been John Coltrane’s 90th birthday (he was born on Sept. 23, 1926), the pianist Steve Kuhn — one of Coltrane’s sidemen, however briefly — assembles a respectful cast. Eric Alexander endeavors to fill Coltrane’s shoes on tenor saxophone, while Jaleel Shaw plays alto; the rhythm section has Lonnie Plaxico on bass and Steve Smith on drums. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080, birdlandjazz.com. (Chinen)

STEPHAN CRUMP RHOMBAL QUARTET (Saturday) Mr. Crump is a bassist with a broad stylistic frame, at home in both the avant-garde and a more traditional framework. With his band Rhombal, which just released an excellent self-titled album, he opts not to draw any distinctions between those poles, working with the trumpeter Adam O’Farrill, the saxophonist Ellery Eskelin and the drummer Tyshawn Sorey. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. at the Jazz Gallery, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street, 646-494-3625, jazzgallery.org. (Chinen)

FESTIVAL OF NEW TRUMPET MUSIC (Monday through Sept. 25) This annual convocation of trumpet-centric progressivism, rooted in, but not restricted to, the jazz tradition, begins with a two-night subseries titled Visionaries, at Threes Brewing in Brooklyn (at 333 Douglass Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues, Gowanus). It features players like Shane Endsley and Nadje Noordhuis. Another series, Signatures in Brass, will be hosted by Marquis Hill on Wednesday and Thursday at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola (at 60th and Broadway), with trumpeters including Ingrid Jensen, Theo Croker, Maurice Brown, Jason Palmer and Darren Barrett. A full festival schedule is at fontmusic.org. (Chinen)

THE ANDREW HILL LEGACY PROJECT (Tuesday and Wednesday) Before he died in 2007, the brilliant pianist-composer Andrew Hill saw his music find traction among younger generations of musicians. This tribute begins on Tuesday with a quartet led by a prominent disciple, the pianist Vijay Iyer, with Eric McPherson on drums alongside two bassists, Mark Helias and John Hébert. On Wednesday the pianist Frank Kimbrough leads a crew that includes Mr. Helias, the drummer Nasheet Waits, the trumpeter Ron Horton and the multi-reedists Marty Ehrlich and J. D. Parran. At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, Manhattan, 212-576-2232, jazzstandard.com. (Chinen)
