Nightlife Highlights: The Cookers

April 9. The Cookers are a jazz supergroup; between them, pianist George Cables, bassist Cecil McBee, trumpeters Eddie Henderson and David Weiss, drummer Billy Hart, and saxophonists Billy Harper and Craig Handy have played with the likes of Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Charles Lloyd, Freddie Hubbard, and others. Straight-up hard bop is the name of the game here, and, needless to say given their pedigree, there are few other bands working today who can touch them when it comes to the idiom. The group heats up the Falcon for this early April date. (The Sweet Clementines and Mr. Gone split the bill April 7; Terry Reid wails April 23.) 7pm. Donation requested. Marlboro. (845) 236-7970; Liveatthefalcon.com.

  • Making the Cut: Decora

    A more serious and committed Hudson Valley musical figure than Decora does not come to mind. Everything the 32-year-old does and says comes with a breathtaking level of locked-down, unwaveringly intense focus.

  • 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.
