Eric Revis of Tarbaby performing with the Kurt Rosenwinkel Standards Trio. Taken at Paradox Tilburg, The Netherlands.  

Tarbaby
(Le) Poisson Rouge; 6/23 at 9:20 p.m.; 158 Bleecker St., nr. Thompson St.; 212-505-3474
Anchored by bassist Eric Revis and drummer Nasheet Waits, Tarbaby crafts a sound that's three parts free-jazz fire and one part straight-ahead discipline. Pianist Orrin Evans and saxophonist Oliver Lake round out the group.

Andrew D'Angelo Big Band
Sullivan Hall; 6/23 at 10:50 p.m.; 214 Sullivan St., nr. Bleecker St.; 866-468-7619
One of the undersung stalwarts of the New York jazz scene, alto saxophonist D'Angelo ascended through the ranks in the nineties, successfully beat brain cancer in the aughts, and now presents his brash, groove-heavy big band.

Dave King Trucking Company
Sullivan Hall; 6/23 at midnight; 214 Sullivan St., nr. Bleecker St.; 866-468-7619
The new side project of the Bad Plus's irascible drummer straddles the jazz-rock divide, with heavy backbeats and plenty of tenor-sax interplay. Here, they'll be previewing their elegant debut album, Good Old Light.

Darius Jones Trio
Littlefield; 6/25 at 10:20 p.m.; 622 Degraw St., nr. 4th Ave., Gowanus; 718-855-3388
Thirty-two-year-old Darius Jones has established himself as the latest in an avant-garde saxophone lineage that includes the likes of David S. Ware, Pharaoh Sanders, and Albert Ayler. But his music isn't all cacophony: Amid the fury, there's the unmistakable cry of the blues.

Josh Roseman's Joshua 3
Public Assembly; 6/26 at 10:30 p.m.; 70 N. 6th St., nr. Wythe Ave., Williamsburg; 718-384-4586
The restless trombonist has a big, round tone and a sharp ear for group balance. Here, he fronts a lean ensemble with Curtis Hasselbring on guitar, Peter Apfelbaum on organ, and Joe Russo on drums.
