January 26. Pianist Armen Donelian began making his name on the jazz scene in 1975, when he joined Mongo Santamaria’s band. Since then, he’s added Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker, Billy Harper, Paquito D’Rivera, Billy Hart, Eddie Gomez, and others to the list of legends he’s worked with. Donelian’s newest offering is Leapfrog, a sextet session that appeared on the Sunnyside label last year. In addition to that grouping he leads a trio, which also stars drummer George Schuller (Jaki Byard, Mick Goodrick) and bassist David Clark (Mose Allison, George Benson), and does a date at the Castle Street Cafe this month. (The venue hosts jazz every Friday and Saturday night; visit website for schedule.) 7:30pm. Free. Great Barrington, Massachusetts. (413) 524-5244.
