February 17. Jazz crusader James Keepnews has been doing good work with his Monday Night Jazz series at new venue Quinn's. He's been bringing in the cream of today's free jazz crop, and this hit by New York's searing alto saxophonist Patrick Brennan and fabled multi-instrumentalist and composer Cooper-Moore continues the trend. Brennan has found inspiration in other cultures, recording with Gnawa musicians for 2000's Sudani. Primarily a pianist, Cooper-Moore is also known for his percussion playing and the innovative instruments he makes from trash and found objects. (The Andrea Wolper Trio visits February 3; the Kenny Wessel Trio sounds out February 24.) 8pm. Donation requested. Beacon. (845) 202-7447; Facebook.com/QuinnsBeacon.
