December 22. For over 20 years, Avram Fefer has been one of the most active players in the avant-jazz sphere, working in Boston, Paris, and his current home of New York. The saxophonist, who this month brings his trio featuring bassist Michael Bisio and drummer Michael Wimberly to Quinn's for the venue's vital ongoing jazz series, has released 10 albums as a leader and worked with Archie Shepp, the Last Poets, David Murray, Kirk Lightsey, Butch Morris, Defunkt's Joseph Bowie, Greg Tate's Burnt Sugar, and more. Also well documented are Fefer's numerous collaborations with musicians from North and Central Africa, which continue to shape his playing. (Robert Kopec swings December 1; Jim Black and David Rothenberg head out December 8.) 8pm. Donation requested. Beacon. (845) 202-7447; Facebook.com/QuinnsBeacon.
