LOVE AND MUSIC: CELEBRATING CONNIE CROTHERS (Sunday) Ms. Crothers was a pianist and teacher who carried on the legacy of Lennie Tristano, while carving her own path as a melodic improviser. She died this year at 75, and will be celebrated here by a panoply of admirers in the avant-garde, including the bassists Michael Bisio and Ken Filiano, the saxophonists Jemeel Moondoc and Rob Brown, and the vocalists Jay Clayton and Andrea Wolper. At 4:30 p.m., Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue, near Third Avenue, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, 917-267-0363, roulette.org. (Chinen)
ERIK FRIEDLANDER’S BLACK PHEBE (Thursday) Mr. Friedlander is a cellist at home in both experimental and rootsy terrain, and adept at reconciling the two. He has a fine new album, “Rings,” featuring a trio he calls Black Phebe, with Shoko Nagai on piano and Satoshi Takeishi on percussion; it appears on the Interpretations concert series alongside the Same Animal Band, led by the guitarist David First. At 8 p.m., Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue, near Third Avenue, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, 917-267-0363, roulette.org. (Chinen)
MCCOY TYNER QUARTET (Monday and Tuesday) The rumble of Mr. Tyner’s pianism has quieted a bit over the years, but he’s still a compelling stylist — especially alongside Gary Bartz, the incisive saxophonist and longtime ally who joins him here, in a band with Gerald Cannon on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums. At 8 and 10:30 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080, birdlandjazz.com. (Chinen)
