Jazz Listings From The New York Times

From the Times:

THE BROOKLYN EXPERIMENTS (Sunday) This continuing series spotlights two good working bands here, each falling slightly to the left of center. Starting at 8:30 p.m. is a group led by the bassist Chris Tarry, and featuring reliable sparks from the alto saxophonist David Binney. Then at 10, the Execution Quintet, led by the trombonist Josh Roseman, takes advantage of some smart cohesion between the trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, the alto saxophonist Myron Walden, the multireedist Peter Apfelbaum (playing organ here), and the drummer Rudy Royston. At Rose Live Music, 345 Grand Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, (718) 599-0069,; no cover. (Chinen)HOLLY COLE (Wednesday and Thursday) Ms. Cole is the sort of jazz chanteuse who coyly evokes an image of curling smoke and shadows, but she has solid musical footing. She draws here from a recent self-titled album, which she produced with the bassist Greg Cohen. At 8 and 10:30 p.m., Blue Note, 131 West Third Street, West Village, (212) 475-8592,; cover, $25 at tables, $15 at the bar, with a $5 minimum. (Chinen).

OLIVER LAKE BIG BAND (Friday) Oliver Lake, a well-traveled alto saxophonist with a robust and piercing sound, features his own music for this large ensemble, with help from strong improvisers like the multireedist Marty Erhlich, the trumpeter Peck Allmond and the trombonist Craig Harris. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village, (212) 242-1063,; cover, $15; $10 for members. (Chinen)

TONY MALABY AND PALOMA RECIO (Saturday) The versatile tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby brings a Spanish tinge to this working band with the guitarist Ben Monder, the bassist Eivind Opsvik and the drummer Nasheet Waits. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village, (212) 242-1063,; cover, $15; $10 for members. (Chinen)

Josh Roseman’s Execution Quintet at Firehouse 12

From Improvised Communications:

On Friday, October 17th, Firehouse 12 will present a two-set performance by renowned trombonist/composer Josh Roseman’s Execution Quintet. One of Roseman’s newest ensembles as a leader, this eclectic Brooklyn-based group creates music ranging from the intense to the theatrical, with elements of game theory thrown in for good measure. Its chord-less line-up features trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, Dutch saxophonist Ben Van Gelder, bassist Chris Lightcap and drummer Dave Treut.
