May 17. Over the span of his many years in jazz, Woodstock drummer Tani Tabbal has explored and excelled in the realms of avant-garde, traditional, and world jazz. The percussionist, who here plays a rare hometown show as leader, began his career as a teenager in the bands of Sun Ra, Oscar Brown Jr., and Phil Cohran, and went on the play with Roscoe Mitchell, David Murray, James Carter, Geri Allen, Cassandra Wilson, Dewey Redman, Karl Berger, David "Fathead" Newman, Anthony Braxton, Evan Parker, Jackie McLean, Muhal Richard Abrams, Milt Jackson, and many more. This Bearsville Theater gig celebrates the release of Mixed Motion, his third album under his own name, and will feature that disc's trio of Tabbal, bassist Michael Bisio, and saxophonist Adam Siegel. (Simi Stone sings May 1; Ewan Dobson strums May7.) 7pm. $15. Bearsville. (845) 679-4409; Bearsvilletheater.com.
