Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibition This biannual Greenwich Village display — it also takes place over Labor Day Weekend — will be set up on University Place, from East 13th, along Washington Square Park to West Third Street.

Barry Harris Trio
Barry Harris belongs to a generation of jazz pianists who carried the torch of bebop into an uncertain future. His touch and melodic instinct are unerring, and he leads this working trio — Ray Drummond is the bassist, Leroy Williams the drummer — with well-earned ease. (Chinen-NYT)
Village Vanguard, 178 Seventh Avenue South, at 11th Street
At 8:30 and 10:30 p.m., $25 cover, with a one-drink minimum.
255-4037, villagevanguard.com

Bill Charlap Trio
The pianist Bill Charlap, the bassist Peter Washington and the drummer Kenny Washington make up this spit-and-polish trio, which favors a crisp approach to standard songbook fare. That’s the personnel appearing this weekend, but next week the eminent bassist Ron Carter will fill in for Mr. Washington: a meaningful substitution, and a logical one. (Chinen-NYT)
Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Jazz at Lincoln Center, 60th Street and Broadway,
At 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., $35 and $45 cover, with a $10 minimum.
