Guitarist Marc Ribot, a rootsy maverick with about as broad a stylistic range as you'll find in modern improv, reconvenes his outstanding trio with veteran bassist Henry Grimes and versatile drummer Chad Taylor in celebration of Grimes's 79th birthday. The band draws inspiration from Albert Ayler and late-period Coltrane, and while it excels at ecstatic free jazz, it can also stomp the blues and break your heart with a ballad. For evidence, consult its 2014 Pi Recordings effort, Live at the Village Vanguard—or, better yet, turn up for this gig.
