BROKEN SHADOWS at Korzo (Oct. 3, 9 and 10:30 p.m.). Four enchanting improvisers to have emerged in New York in the 1980s and ’90s are the alto saxophonist Tim Berne, the tenor saxophonist Chris Speed, the bassist Reid Anderson and the drummer Dave King. Now they’re a quartet called Broken Shadows, playing compositions by avant-garde jazz heroes: Ornette Coleman, Julius Hemphill, Charlie Haden and Dewey Redman.

PETER EVANS at the Stone (Oct. 3-8, 8:30 p.m.). Peter Evans plays the trumpet like a homing device, a percussion instrument, a didgeridoo, or distant bird call. He is now a heavily relied-upon sideman on New York’s avant-garde jazz scene, because he can seemingly do anything with his horn, while keeping his heart on his sleeve. But some of his most compelling work is as a soloist. He’s in residence at the Stone, where he will play with a range of collaborators and finish the run with a solo performance on Sunday, Oct. 8.

ADAM RUDOLPH’S MOVING PICTURES at the Jazz Gallery (Oct. 3-4, 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.). In Moving Pictures, an octet led by the percussionist Mr. Rudolph, the rhythms of Brazil, West Africa and the Caribbean combine in an aesthetic that recalls the various fusion sounds of the 1970s and ’80s. A seven-piece iteration of the band will appear at this concert, which celebrates the release of Moving Pictures’ new album, “Glare of the Tiger.”

The Best New Ambient Music on Bandcamp

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

There are infinite atmospheric worlds available on Bandcamp. From the dreamy to the nightmarish, and the meditative to the deeply unsettling, these compositions often fall under the ambient umbrella. Albums without words that are deeply thoughtful and thought-provoking in their own way—these releases come from all corners of the globe. Every month, Aurora Mitchell will take you through the best ambient releases. In this edition, there’s music that declares the powerful message of “no fences,” physics-inspired ambient, and chill-inducing crow caws.

New Haven’s Firehouse 12 Profiled

Ninth Square Historic District, New Haven.

Source: Dwell.

Ask any two people from New Haven what Firehouse 12 is, and you’re almost bound to get two different answers. To music lovers, the restored 1905 fire station on Crown Street is Connecticut’s preeminent venue for experimental jazz, a place where artists who normally have a hard time booking gigs outside of major cities can draw an enthusiastic crowd. For the civic-minded, it’s a local success story, the crown jewel in New Haven’s decades-long effort to clean up the Ninth Square district. And for others, it’s simply a downtown watering hole, albeit a very nice one presided over by an award-winning bartender.

The truth is, Firehouse 12 is all those things, a beacon for the arts and a hub for the community. And at the heart of the venture, started 12 years ago by owner Nick Lloyd, is a recording studio that pulls double duty as a 75-seat auditorium for live shows during the spring and fall jazz series.
