Selected Musical Events – May 30, 2013
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.
Joe Lovano Nonet
Joe Lovano, a tenor saxophonist with broad experience in large ensembles, has led this bop-flavored nonet — stocked with peers like the trumpeter Tim Hagans and the saxophonist Steve Slagle — on and off for more than a decade. He’ll draw here from his 2006 album, “Streams of Expression” (Blue Note), which smartly featured the orchestrations of Gunther Schuller, a specialist in groups of this size. (Chinen-NYT)

A Brazilian pianist with a transparent touch and a fondness for subtle harmonic shading, Ms. Elias is also a singer of breathy composure, as she demonstrates on her new album, “I Thought About You: A Tribute to Chet Baker” (Concord Jazz). The album is being released on Tuesday, the first evening of her five-night engagement here with a typically strong supporting cast. (Chinen-NYT)
