Jean Rohe
“A sure-footed young singer-songwriter mixing aesthetic approaches from jazz, folk and chamber music, Ms. Rohe appears on Sunday with something she calls her End of the World Show, playing mandolin alongside the accordionist Liam Robinson, the percussionist Rogério Boccato and the percussionist James Shipp, among others. (Sharing the bill is Down Home, a worthy project of the saxophonist Petr Cancura.) On April 23 Ms. Rohe performs with no outside help, playing a new batch of songs.” — (NATE CHINEN, NYT)

Terell Stafford Quintet
“A bright and assertive trumpeter with a solid hard-bop footing, Terell Stafford has lately been hard at work trying to establish the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia, an entity devoted to the music and musicians of his adopted hometown. He seems likely to draw partly from that legacy here, leading a band with a fellow Philadelphian, Tim Warfield, on saxophones.” — (NATE CHINEN, NYT)

Ballet Hispanico
“For its 25th season at the Joyce Theater, the company has acquired a classic by the Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato, “Jardi Tancat.” The earthy, lyrical evocation of Mediterranean cultures, made 30 years ago, is paired with two works by younger Spaniards on Program A: a world premiere by Cayetano Soto and a Europop–driven romp by Inma García and Meritxell Barberá. Program B offers tastes of tango, flamenco and Cuban danzón in works by Eduardo Vilaro (with live Latin jazz by the Paquito D’Rivera Ensemble), Alejandro Cervera and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.” — (SIOBHAN BURKE, NYT)
