ANTHONY COLEMAN AND ELLERY ESKELIN at Greenwich House Music School (May 11, 7:30 p.m.). Mr. Coleman, a pianist, sources his inspiration widely: from Jewish folk music, free jazz and Western minimalism, among others.
VIJAY IYER SEXTET at the Village Vanguard (May 15-20, 8:30 and 10:30 p.m.). Mr. Iyer’s sextet provides a resonant vessel for his heady, hot-blooded compositions; the group’s debut album, “Far From Over,” was one of last year’s best.
MARIO PAVONE’S DIALECT TRIO at Cornelia Street Café (May 11, 8:30 and 10 p.m.). Mr. Pavone plays the bass with a sturdy hand and a beginner’s mind: Nothing feels rote or perfunctory or overdetermined.
