Two live-music outings this week, both of them phenomenally good. The first, in an intimate space just off a nondescript stretch of road between one place and another in Brooklyn, brought together three improvising combos: the trio MAW (bassist Frank Meadows, guitarist Jessica Ackerley, and pianist/percussionist Eli Wallace); the duo of flutist Laura Cocks and Madison Greenstone, both of TAK Ensemble; and a trio featuring Los Angeles saxophonist Patrick Shiroishi with two New York City mainstays, violinist gabby fluke-mogul and multi-instrumentalist Che Chen. Live visual projections by Laura Sofía Pérez accompanied all the sets, providing sympathetic vibes and ironic juxtapositions.
