FESTIVAL OF NEW TRUMPET MUSIC at various locations (Sept. 5-12). The trumpeter (and, at this festival, organizer) Dave Douglas has assembled a stylistically ambitious lineup for this year’s Festival of New Trumpet Music, welcoming some of the best-known trumpeters in improvised music as well as fresher faces.

MILFORD GRAVES AND SHAHZAD ISMAILY, MARINA ROSENFELD, AND CHARMAINE LEE at First Unitarian Congregational Society (Sept. 6, 8 p.m.). At 77, Mr. Graves — an influential drummer and experimentalist with a billowing, shadowy style — is enjoying a kind of personal renaissance.

AARON PARKS’S LITTLE BIG AND RAFIQ BHATIA AND CRAIG WEINRIB at Nublu 151 (Sept. 6, 9 p.m.). Mr. Parks is a deft and often-dulcet pianist, who incorporates a wide array of contemporary influences.
