June 22. One of today's most in-demand jazz drummers, Winard Harper was just out of his teens when he joined Dexter Gordon's band; from there it was on to stints with Johnny Griffin, Betty Carter, Wycliffe Gordon, Ray Bryant, and the quintet he co-led with his brother, trumpeter Philip Harper. The percussionist, who here hits the Falcon with his own sextet, continues to work all around the world and record with such artists such as Joe Lovano, Avery Sharpe, Steve Turre, Frank Wess, Jimmy Heath, and others. (Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys do-se-do June 15; Aashish Khan graces the stage June 20.) 8pm. Donation. Marlboro.

  • 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.
