Ben Goldberg at the Stone
The Stone, April 28-May 3 at 8 and 10 p.m.
Mr. Goldberg is a clarinetist and composer with an admirable breadth of vision, and he’ll bring that quality to his residency at the Stone. It begins on Tuesday at 8 p.m. with a trio featuring Michael Formanek on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums; subsequent sets, in larger or smaller configurations, pair him with collaborators like the tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby and the drummer Ches Smith.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
Pedro Giraudo Big Band
Jazz Standard, April 28 at 7:30 and 10 p.m.
This large ensemble — led by Pedro Giraudo, an Argentine bassist with strong ideas about rhythm and orchestration — has a new album, “Cuentos,” that explores themes connected to Latin American folk life. Mr. Giraudo celebrates the album’s release, shining a spotlight not only on the new music but also on dynamic soloists like the trumpeter Jonathan Powell and the saxophonist Todd Bashore.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
Enrico Pieranunzi Quartet
Village Vanguard, April 28-May 3 at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m.
Enrico Pieranunzi is one of the leading jazz pianists in Italy, a careful rhapsodist with a more than casual appreciation of the Bill Evans style. He works often with American partners, and has a good crew for this engagement: the tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin, the bassist Scott Colley and the drummer Clarence Penn.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
The Bad Plus
Blue Note, April 28-May 3 at 8 and 10:30 p.m.
The new album by the Bad Plus, due out next month, will be a collaboration with the saxophonist Joshua Redman, a kindred spirit and a member of the same jazz generation. This weeklong run features just the original band lineup (Reid Anderson on bass, Ethan Iverson on piano, David King on drums), which can deliver a gut punch one moment and turn delicate as a snowflake in the next.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
Peter and Will Anderson
59E59 Theaters, April 28-May 7
The upstanding young torchbearers Peter and Will Anderson — also clarinetists, saxophonists, Juilliard alumni and identical twins — draw from their new album, “Déjà Vu,” on Friday with the guitarist Alex Wintz. On Tuesday, they begin a limited run with the unfortunate title “The Joy of Sax,” though the lineup is more promising: Harry Allen on tenor saxophone, Pat Bianchi on Hammond B-3 organ and Kenny Washington on drums.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
Bohemian National Hall, April 28-29 at 8 p.m.
Part of this year’s anniversary festivities for the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, these concerts will feature the S.E.M. Ensemble — and members of Ostravska banda, a chamber orchestra from the Czech Republic — playing works by the association members Muhal Richard Abrams, George Lewis, Roscoe Mitchell and Henry Threadgill (as well as by Christian Wolff and John Cage). Several of the composers will also perform; Wednesday’s program includes a blue-chip trio, with Mr. Abrams on piano, Mr. Mitchell on saxophones and flute and Mr. Lewis on electronics and trombone.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
Gerald Clayton Trio
Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, April 28 at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.
Gerald Clayton, a pianist of great touch and soulful exposition, has been expanding his horizons of late: He can be heard on the expeditionary new album by the veteran saxophonist and flutist Charles Lloyd. And while Mr. Clayton’s main outlet continues to be the acoustic trio, he doesn’t typically work with the veteran rhythm aces surfacing here: John Patitucci on bass and Bill Stewart on drums.-- Nate Chinen, NYTimes
