Jeremiah Cymerman moves in avant-jazz, new-music and art-metal circles, but his own work doesn't fit comfortably in any of those categories; every new release from the local clarinetist-composer is a sui generis dispatch from the front lines of the NYC avant-garde. Here, Cymerman leads Pale Horse Trio—featuring cellist Christopher Hoffman and percussionist Brian Chase—which performs ominous, ritualistic, finely detailed drone works that handsomely reward the acute attention they demand. Toby Driver, mastermind behind shape-shifting local art-rock unit Kayo Dot, opens with a solo set.
