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.

Since 2013, the duo of pianist John Scanlon and bassist Ben Basile has held court there every Tuesday, jamming with an array of local talent each week and establishing Po-Town as a rising force in local bop.

  • CD Review: Zs' "XE"

    Higgins and current fellow Zs Sam Hillmer (sax and pedals) and Greg Fox (percussion and electronics) are nothing short of poets of noise. Even in the most assaultive moments on Zs' new record, XE, a sense of delicacy, separation, and emotive purpose prevails.
