Trenton Doyle Hancock

Studio Museum Harlem : 12:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

Hip-Hop Revolution

Brian Blade & the Fellowship Band

Zankel Hall at Carnegie : 9:00 p.m. April 25

Born in London to Ghanaian parents, Clementine was discovered busking in the Paris Metro.

Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. May 5

A marvelous mashup that consistently transcends its source material, guitarist Jon Madof's 2013 Tzadik Records debut combined Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's ecstatic Jewish music with Fela Kuti's swaggering Afrobeat sound.
