Jazz Listings from the New York Times

From NYTimes.com:

JACOB FRED JAZZ ODYSSEY (Friday) Having recently expanded from trio to quartet form, this road-savvy band now includes the pianist Brian Haas, the bassist Matt Hayes, the drummer Josh Raymer and the lap steel guitarist Chris Combs. “One Day in Brooklyn” (Kinnara), the group’s new EP, documents a two-pronged shift: toward countrified timbres and post-bop exposition.

LARRY OCHS SAX & DRUMMING CORE (Tuesday) The tenor and soprano saxophonist Larry Ochs is probably best known for his founding role in the Rova Saxophone Quartet, a new-music ensemble with more than 30 years of performing experience. “Stone Shift” (Rogue Art), his almost hypnotically intense new album, features the same ensemble heard here, with two assertive drummers (Scott Amendola and Donald Robinson); a keyboardist (Satoko Fujii); and a trumpeter (Natsuki Tamura). At 8:30 p.m., Roulette, 20 Greene Street, at Grand Street, SoHo , (212) 219-8242, roulette.org; $15; $10 for students and under 30. (Chinen)20091008

AUM Fidelity presents two world-renowned jazz masters and our extraordinarily gifted latest signing in a one-night-only showcase at the Abrons Arts Center main performance space – a beautiful, intimate and mighty comfortable 300+ seat theater in the heart of the Lower East Side of Manhattan. We are very excited about this rare AUM live production and aim to sell the house out; we hope that you will be able to join us for this night of sure-to-be profoundly beautiful and transformative music.

His latest studio recording, Shakti, was released to great acclaim in January. This year of 2009 also marks Ware’s 50th year of playing saxophone, having begun his remarkable journey into music very early on. He will be marking this doubly auspicious occasion by presenting a very special solo performance on tenor and two less well known members of the saxophone family: the saxello and the stritch. He will have a lot .to say though his horns on this night, people!

9:00pm……

On this night, he will be celebrating the October 13 release of his debut album as a leader, Man’ish Boy (A Raw & Beautiful Thing). The performance will feature Darius Jones: alto sax, Cooper-Moore: piano & diddley-bo & Jason Nazary: drums.

Jazz Listings from the NY Times

In the Times:

DARCY JAMES ARGUE’S SECRET SOCIETY (Friday) This postmillennial big band, led by Mr. Argue, an indefatigable young composer, recently released an admirable studio debut, “Infernal Machines” (New Amsterdam). In performance the group balances airtight precision with a good measure of looseness and crackle. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village , (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $15, members $10. (Nate Chinen)20090917

TAYLOR HO BYNUM (Saturday) Mr. Bynum is a cornetist drawn to combustible interaction, but on his new release, “Madeleine Dreams” (Firehouse 12), which features his jazz-meets-classical ensemble SpiderMonkey Strings, he seeks out a gentle aesthetic, with vocal and literary touches. The same group appears here, drawing deeply from the album. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village , (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $15, members $10. (Chinen)20090917

FRANK CARLBERG’S TIVOLI TRIO (Tuesday) Mr. Carlberg, an adventurous pianist and composer, pursues unusual textures and surprising actions in this trio, with the bassist John Hébert and the drummer Gerald Cleaver. The group will soon be recording an album, for release next year; so this one-nighter counts as a dress rehearsal. At 8 p.m., Douglass Street Music Collective, 295 Douglass Street, near Third Avenue, Gowanus, Brooklyn , myspace.com/295douglass; $10. (Chinen)20090917

JAMES CARTER (Friday and Saturday) Mr. Carter is a saxophonist of rampaging energies and unstoppable charisma, and he does some of his best work when tethered loosely to a concept. Here he pays tribute to the horizon-scanning music of John Coltrane with Rashied Ali, leading a plugged-in group that consists of the guitarist Bruce Edwards, the Hammond B-3 organist Gerard Gibbs and the drummer Eli Fountain. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton , (212) 581-3080, birdlandjazz.com; $30, general seating; $40, premium seating. (Chinen)20090917

? CLEAN FEED FEST (Friday and Saturday) Named after a record label based in Lisbon, this festival celebrates the exploratory side of modern jazz. Among the highlights during the event’s final stretch: the multireedist Avram Fefer, leading the trio from his new album, “Ritual” (Friday at 10:30 p.m.); the trumpeter Kirk Knuffke, revisiting the music from his most recent release, “Big Wig” (Saturday at 8); and Fight the Big Bull, a raucous large group joined here by the trumpeter Steven Bernstein (Sunday at 9:30). Cornelia Connelly Center, 220A East Fourth Street, East Village , cleanfeed-records.com; $15. (Chinen)20090917

COLTRANE REVISITED (Wednesday and Thursday) In commemoration of John Coltrane, whose 83rd birthday would have fallen next week, the tenor and soprano saxophonist Joe Lovano leads a band with the pianist Steve Kuhn, the bassist Lonnie Plaxico and two drummers, Billy Hart and Andrew Cyrille. The repertory seems likely to coincide partly with “Mostly Coltrane” (ECM), a fine album recently released under Mr. Kuhn’s name, with Mr. Lovano as a featured guest. (Through Sept. 26.) At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton , (212) 581-3080, birdlandjazz.com; $30, general seating; $40, premium seating. (Chinen)20090917

JEMEEL MOONDOC QUARTET (Saturday) The saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc practices a form of boisterous exploration descended from the 1960s jazz avant-garde. He has the right partners for such a task here: the pianist Connie Crothers, the bassist (and now violinist) Henry Grimes and the drummer Chad Taylor. At 8 and 10 p.m., the Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village , thestonenyc.com; $15. (Chinen)20090917

NEW LANGUAGES FESTIVAL (Thursday) Now in its fifth year, this musician-run festival draws a range of left-of-center musicians under its umbrella. This weekend that lineup includes the trombonist Ben Gerstein, presenting an electro-acoustic project he calls the Gates (Friday at 8:30 p.m.); the guitarist Brandon Ross, leading a trio (Saturday at 8:30); and the tenor saxophonist Bill McHenry, with his quintet (Saturday at 10). Next week it will include a trio consisting of the saxophonist Pete Robbins, the bassist Mario Pavone and the drummer Tyshawn Sorey (Thursday at 10), and a septet led by the festival’s chief organizer, the saxophonist Jackson Moore (Thursday at 11:30). (Through Sept. 26.) McCarren Hall, 98 Bayard Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn , newlanguages.org; $10 per night. (Chinen)20090917

JOHN O’GALLAGHER TRIO (Saturday) John O’Gallagher is an intrepid alto saxophonist and composer, but with a clear melodic streak. He draws here from his most recent album, “Dirty Hands” (Clean Feed), leading a responsive trio with the bassist Masa Kamaguchi and the drummer Jeff Williams. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, West Village , (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; cover, $10. (Chinen)20090917

CHES SMITH’S THESE ARCHES (Wednesday) Avant-garde jazz and experimental rock are essentially intertwined in the music of These Arches, led by Mr. Smith, a drummer, and featuring the tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby, the guitarist Mary Halvorson and the accordionist Andrea Parkins. At 8 p.m., Barbès, 376 Ninth Street, at Sixth Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn , (347) 422-0248, barbesbrooklyn.com; $10. (Chinen)20090917

STELLAR REGIONS (Wednesday) The recent death of Rashied Ali, the visionary drummer in John Coltrane’s late-period bands, lends an especially poignant air to this free-jazz Coltrane tribute. Mr. Ali was a mentor of sorts to each of the musicians on hand here: the saxophonist Louie Belogenis, the trumpeter Roy Campbell Jr., the pianist Andrew Bemkey, the bassist Hilliard Greene and the drummer Michael Wimberly. At 8 p.m., Middle Collegiate Church, 50 East Seventh Street, at Second Avenue, East Village , (212) 477-0666, middlechurch.org; suggested donation, $15.

Jazz Listings from the New York Times

In the Times:

REZ ABBASI GROUP (Thursday) “Things to Come” (Sunnyside) is the strong new statement from Rez Abbasi, a Pakistani-American guitarist with a taste for fluid introspection and slippery fusions. Here he reassembles the album’s superb cast: the alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa, the pianist Vijay Iyer, the bassist Johannes Weidenmueller, the drummer Dan Weiss and the vocalist Kiran Ahluwalia. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village , (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $15 for the first set, $10 for members; $10 for the second set, $5 for members. (Nate Chinen)20090910

CLAUDIA QUINTET (Sunday) This improvising chamber ensemble pursues texturally oriented and often contrapuntal exploration; John Hollenbeck’s drumming is one color on a palette that also includes Chris Speed’s clarinet and tenor saxophone, Ted Reichman’s accordion, Drew Gress’s bass and Matt Moran’s vibraphone. For this performance, the group becomes a sextet with the addition of Gary Versace on piano. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery, 290 Hudson Street, at Spring Street, South Village , (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $15, $10 for members. (Chinen)20090910

? CLEAN FEED FEST (Wednesday and Thursday) Named after a record label based in Lisbon, this festival celebrates the exploratory side of modern jazz. Among the highlights during the event’s first leg: the drummer Harris Eisenstadt, leading the same band as on his fine album “Canada Day,” due out next month (Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.); and the cellist Daniel Levin, with the quartet featured on his new release, “Live at Roulette” (Thursday at 9:30). (Through Sept. 20.) Cornelia Connelly Center, 220A East Fourth Street, East Village , cleanfeed-records.com; $15. (Chinen)20090910

STEPHAN CRUMP’S ROSETTA TRIO (Saturday) An intriguing string-based ensemble, featuring the compositions and bass playing of Mr. Crump and the guitar work of both Liberty Ellman (acoustic) and Jamie Fox (electric). At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, West Village , (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; cover, $12, with a one-drink minimum. (Chinen)20090910

FUTURE QUEST (Friday) The subtitle of this performance, “Reimagining the Music of Meredith Monk,” partly explains what the quest in the title is about. Ms. Monk has long been a fearlessly multidisciplinary artist, and here she serves as a muse for two of her longtime ensemble members, the vocalist Theo Bleckmann and the percussionist John Hollenbeck. Also on board, in what promises to be a unique proposition: the saxophonists Ellery Eskelin and Tony Malaby, and the pianist Gary Versace. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, West Village , (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; cover, $10, with a one-drink minimum. (Chinen)20090910

HENRY GRIMES (Saturday) Mr. Grimes, a bassist and long-lost titan of the avant-garde, performs a benefit concert for Harlem Textile Works alongside such fearless improvisers as the drummer Michael Wimberly and the multireedist Andrew Lamb. At 7 and 9 p.m., Black Box Theater, 308 West 133rd Street, Harlem , loftartsproductions.com; $15, $7.50 for students. (Chinen)20090910

JOHN HÉBERT QUARTET (Wednesday) “Byzantine Monkey” (Firehouse 12) is the engrossing debut from John Hébert, a bassist of deep intuition and extensive experience as a sideman. He draws partly from the album here, in a one-night stand featuring the trumpeter Ralph Alessi, the alto saxophonist Tim Berne and the drummer Satoshi Takeishi. At 8 p.m., Barbès, 376 Ninth Street, at Sixth Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn , (347) 422-0248, barbesbrooklyn.com; $10. (Chinen)20090910

INTERPRETATIONS: ADAM RUDOLPH/YUSEF LATEEF (Thursday) Mr. Lateef, 88, a legendarily open-minded multireedist, and Mr. Rudolph, 53, a horizon-scanning percussionist, have been collaborative partners on and off for the last 20 years, with shared investment in the idea of a musical universalism. Here they each present new works, though Mr. Lateef won’t be playing an instrument; in addition to composing much of the music, he reads his own poetry. At 8:30 p.m., Roulette, 20 Greene Street, at Grand Street, SoHo , (212) 219-8242, roulette.org; $15; $10 for students and under 30; free for Roulette members. (Chinen)20090910

? NEW LANGUAGES FESTIVAL (Thursday) Now in its fifth year, this musician-run festival draws a range of left-of-center musicians under its umbrella, including an admirable assembly here: the Respect Sextet, a dynamic collective (at 8:30 p.m.); House of Mirrors, an improvising quartet (at 10); and Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, a precision-honed big band (at 11:30). (Through Sept. 26.) McCarren Hall, 98 Bayard Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn , newlanguages.org; $10. (Chinen)20090910

RED HOOK JAZZ FESTIVAL (Sunday) This low-key open-air festival, not far from the docks in Brooklyn, features a handful of indie-minded ensembles, led by venturesome improvisers like the saxophonist Ras Moshe and the trombonist Steve Swell. From 2 to 5:30 p.m., Cabrini Green Urban Meadow, at the corner of President and Van Brunt Streets, Red Hook, Brooklyn , myspace.com/redhookjazzfest; donations accepted. (Chinen)20090910

SEX MOB (Friday) The members of this downtown institution have lately been engaged in various other pursuits, but their sound is as raucous, and their rapport as rambunctious, as ever. Steven Bernstein plays slide trumpet and leads the charge, though equal weight is pulled by Briggan Krauss on alto saxophone, Tony Scherr on bass and guitar, and Kenny Wollesen on drums. At 10 p.m., 55 Bar, 55 Christopher Street, West Village , (212) 929-9883, 55bar.com; cover, $10. (Chinen)

Jazz Listings From The New York Times

From NYTimes.com:

EVOLVING MUSIC (Monday) The next installment of this avant-garde series will feature two trios, each with a strong identity. First up at 7:30 p.m. is Flow Trio, with Louie Belogenis on tenor saxophone, Joe Morris on bass and Charles Downs on drums; the group has a stark but rewarding new album, “Rejuvenation” (ESP-Disk). At 9 the smartly blustery trombonist Ray Anderson leads a trio of his own, with bass and drums. The Local 269, 269 East Houston Street, at Suffolk Street, Lower East Side , (212) 254-5420, myspace.com/rucmanyc; $10 per set, $15 for the night; students $7 per set, $12 for the night (Chinen)20090625

TOMAS FUJIWARA AND THE HOOK UP (Saturday) Mr. Fujiwara’s alert drumming has propelled some excellent ensembles on the new-music landscape. Here he presents his own open-ended compositions for a band with Jonathan Finlayson on trumpet, Brian Settles on tenor saxophone, Mary Halvorson on guitar and Danton Boller on bass. At 9 p.m., Jalopy Theater, 315 Columbia Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn , (718) 395-3214, jalopy.biz; $15. (Chinen)20090625

? MARY HALVORSON (Sunday) Last year the guitarist Mary Halvorson released “Dragon’s Head” (Firehouse 12), a brambly but engaging debut featuring her own compositions for a trio with the bassist John Hebert and the drummer Ches Smith. Ms. Halvorson draws again from that material here, but she’ll also perform newer music for quintet, enlisting the trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson and the alto saxophonist Jon Irabagon. At 7 p.m., Joe’s Pub, at the Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street, at Astor Place, East Village , (212) 598-7100, joespub.com; $12 in advance, $15 at the door, with a two-drink or $12 food minimum. (Chinen)20090625

ETHAN IVERSON AND TIM BERNE (Friday) Mr. Iverson, the pianist in the Bad Plus, has worked memorably with the alto saxophonist Tim Berne: last year they both appeared on “Buffalo Collision” (Screwgun), a self-titled debut by a collective, free-improvising quartet. Here they appear in mano-a-mano format, presumably with all the tension and cooperation that term implies. At 10 p.m., the Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village , thestonenyc.com; $10. (Chinen)20090625

TONY MALABY’S APPARITIONS (Monday) Rhythm and texture are often equal priorities for the tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby, but that would seem especially true in this band, which includes two venturesome drummers — Tom Rainey and John Hollenbeck — along with a bassist, Drew Gress. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, West Village , (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; cover, $10, with a one-drink minimum. (Chinen)20090625

ANDY MILNE AND BENOIT DELBECQ (Sunday) Mr. Milne and Mr. Delbecq are resourcefully contemporary pianists, both drawn to quixotic interrogations of harmony and timbre. They team up here, on two pianos, to revisit themes from a strangely beautiful new album, “Where Is Pannonica?” (Songlines). At 4:30 and 6:30 p.m., Klavierhaus, 211 West 58th Street, Manhattan , (718) 732-2276, gomediapr.com; $15, reservations suggested. (Chinen)20090625

? NEW TRUMPET UNDERGROUND 2009 (Friday through Sunday) An off-season production of the Festival of New Trumpet Music, this weekend series gathers eight trumpeter-bandleaders under a progressive banner. Highlights include a set by Old Idea, a Chicago group led by the cornetist Josh Berman, which just released its self-titled Delmark debut (Friday at 10 p.m.); a commissioned premiere by Nadje Noordhuis, an Australian-born trumpeter with a strong, pristine sound (Saturday at 9); and the Russ Johnson Quartet, a steady fixture on the New York scene (Sunday at 9:30). For a full schedule, visit fontmusic.net. Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, West Village , (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 per set, or $15 per night. (Chinen)20090625

BEN PEROWSKY QUARTET (Saturday) Mr. Perowsky, an aggressive but nimble drummer, draws here from a very good forthcoming album, “Esopus Opus” (Skirl), with several reliable partners: the saxophonist and clarinetist Chris Speed, the accordionist Ted Reichman and the bassist Trevor Dunn. An earlier set, at 8 p.m., will feature the maniacally creative percussionist Cyro Baptista, improvising alone. At 10 p.m., the Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village , thestonenyc.com; cover, $10 per set. (Chinen)20090625

MARC RIBOT (Tuesday) Mr. Ribot is a vagabond poet on solo electric guitar, as he proved a handful of years ago with the album “Saints” (Atlantic). He draws partly from the same repertory here, though probably with a few surprises thrown in. At 8 p.m., the Stone, Avenue C and Second Street, East Village , thestonenyc.com; cover, $10. (Chinen)20090625

SEX MOB (Friday) The members of this downtown institution have lately been engaged in various other pursuits, but their sound is as raucous, and their rapport as rambunctious, as ever. Steven Bernstein plays slide trumpet and leads the charge, though equal weight is pulled by Briggan Krauss on alto saxophone, Tony Scherr on bass and guitar and Kenny Wollesen on drums. At 10 p.m., 55 Bar, 55 Christopher Street, West Village , (212) 929-9883, 55bar.com; cover, $10. (Chinen)
