Gerald Cleaver, a deeply responsive avant-jazz drummer who doubles as a handsomely evocative composer, marshals a crew of master improvisers—saxist Darius Jones, guitarist Brandon Seabrook, keyboardist Cooper-Moore and bassist Pascal Niggenkemper—in his latest bandleading venture. This week, the group plays three straight nights at Seeds::Brooklyn in celebration of its new Northern Spy debut, Life in the Sugar Candle Mines, a heady, transporting set of 21st-century postpsych fusion.
