Rochelle Feinstein, Love Vibe

  • Critics choice

The six large-scale canvases making up this single installation piece were created by the veteran painter over a 14-year period. Each presents a different visual variation on the phrase love your work, which, according the artist, is the sort of mindless shorthand that represents the poverty of conversational discourse these days.

  1. On Stellar Rays 1 Rivington St, at Bowery
  2. Sat Apr 19 - Sun May 11

Playing for Jim Hall

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Magisterial guitarist Jim Hall, who died in December, had virtually no peers when it came to mixing improvisational finesse, harmonic sophistication and abundant heart. No imitation at these tribute gigs, then; just a number of friends and collaborators paying their respects by being themselves. Hall's trusty rhythm section—bassist Scott Colley and drummer Joey Baron—anchors the proceedings, and all-star soloists on hand include Bill Frisell, Julian Lage and Greg Osby.

  1. Blue Note 131 W 3rd St, at Sixth Ave
