Tom Harrell: Colors of a Dream

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Everybody knows that Tom Harrell is one of the greatest jazz trumpeters alive, but it's a mistake to overlook his prowess as a composer and arranger.

Back to the '80s Show with Jessie's Girl

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Leg warmers live on with Reagan-era fixated combo Jessie’s Girl playing vintage hits like “We Built This City” and “Don’t Stop Believin’,” bookended by period-apropos DJ sets. Kelly Ripa apparently endorses this party—and since she’s a graduate of the seminal ’80s teen dance show Dance Party USA, it’s safe to consider her something of an expert.

New York Baroque Incorporated

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

This ensemble of recent Juilliard grads—a bright, recent addition to New York's early-music scene—has announced that its third season will deal with a wide swath of the concerto grosso literature. The players are making good on their word, out of the gate, with this initial program. The old school is covered with works by Stradella, Vivaldi and Telemann, while the next-gen side is represented by a new Huang Ruo piece, Distant Mountain, for period instruments.

Justin Vivian Bond: The Drift

  • Price band: 2/4
