Joey Alexander Trio
Jazz Standard, July 28-29 at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.
A prepossessing jazz pianist from Indonesia whose public and critical following has been inextricable from his tender age — he’s now 12 — Joey Alexander leads a trio with the bassist Russell Hall and the drummer Sammy Miller in selections from his debut album, “My Favorite Things.”-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
Jazz in July
92nd Street Y, July 21-23 and July 28-30 at 8 p.m.
This summer concert series, programmed by the pianist Bill Charlap, takes a fondly nostalgic view of jazz and American songbook traditions. Its final three programs are “Swing a Song of Sinatra,” on Tuesday, with the dynamic singer Kurt Elling; “Jazz & Sondheim, Side by Side,” on Wednesday, with Ann Hampton Callaway on vocals and Steve Wilson on saxophones; and “Benny, Basie & Bucky,” a nod to the Benny Goodman and Count Basie orchestras, featuring Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, Joe Locke on vibraphone and Sandy Stewart on vocals.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
Gerry Hemingway at the Stone
The Stone, July 28-Aug. 2 at 8 and 10 p.m.
Mr. Hemingway is a drummer and composer with a gift for illuminating abstract principles, and he has organized his residency at the Stone as a kind of retrospective. “Re-Ensemble,” on Tuesday, will feature groups of varying size, with partners like Earl Howard on saxophone and electronics and Susan Alcorn on steel guitar. Each of Wednesday’s sets will feature a trio: the first with the multireedist Marty Ehrlich and the pianist Anthony Coleman, and the second with the saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa and the pianist Russ Lossing. The emphasis on Thursday will be on Mr. Hemingway’s compositions, as played by collaborators like the saxophonist Ellery Eskelin and the bassist Brad Jones.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
