  • Ben Allison performs at the Falcon in Malboro on January 15.

January 15. The Falcon continues to soar to the levels of world-class jazz one normally has to visit Manhattan to hear. Called "one of today's best young jazz musicians" by the Boston Globe, bassist Ben Allison emerged on the scene in the 1990s with the vital Jazz Composers Collective, and has since gone on to lead bands bearing his own name, as well as the groups Medicine Wheel and Man Size Safe. Here, he sports a tight trio with Rudy Royston (Bill Frisell, Les McCann) on drums and Michael Blake (Allison's Herbie Nichols Project, Ray LaMontagne) on saxes. Hallow Dog opens. (RedCred, featuring John Medeski, Ben Perowsky, and Chris Speed, jam January 6; the Adam Nussbaum Quartet hits January 8.) 6pm. Donation requested. Marlboro. (845) 236-7970; www.liveatthefalcon.com.
