Daryl Sherman

Peacock Alley : 5:30 p.m. August 27

She’s back where she’s played so effortlessly for so many years. Not only that, but she’s evidently back tickling Cole Porter’s old piano as lightly as she knows how. Don’t expect much singing, or any, for that matter. Never mind. She’ll work her spell... More >>

East 40s Music

Ron Carter Big Band

Jazz Standard : 7:30 p.m. daily until August 31

A great bassist is like a great catcher, essential and often overlooked. Whether they know it or not, everyone has heard Ron Carter. It might be with the second great Miles Davis Quintet, or on A Tribe Called Quest's groundbreaking crossover opus, The Low End Theory. Everyone else has heard him... More >>

Murray Hill Music

Jon Irabagon Festival

Downstairs at Cornelia Street Café : 8:30 p.m. daily until August 30

Agility is the forte of this increasingly intriguing saxophonist - one of the wiliest in town. Irabagon has no prob opening a can whoop ass during the middle of an muscular extrapolation, but he also appreciates the value of kiss on the cheek. The best part is that he's convincing with both.... More >>

West Village Music

Ed Palermo Big Band

Iridium : 8:00 p.m. August 29; 8:00 p.m. August 30

The saxophonist-bandleader combines perfect pop with eccentric wizardry for the next two nights – think "Hello It's Me" into "Black Napkins" – when he leads his dynamic 18-piece big band through "Zodd Zundgren," a promisingly demented mash-up of music by Todd Rundgren and Palermo's... More >>

DANCENOW Joe's Pub Festival

Joe's Pub : 7:00 p.m. daily from September 3 until September 6

Doris Humphrey, one of the mothers of modern dance, famously declared that all dances are too long. She never saw the DANCENOW Festival, now in its 19th year, which features 10 troupes nightly, performing choice works on a nightclub stage slightly larger than your bathroom. Many of the acts are...

Some of us have quite enough trouble 
simply walking in six-inch stilettos. But to sing and dance and act in them? Really, someone should hand out honorary Tonys to the Kinky Boots cast just for trying. This new tuner draws its inspiration from a 
recent British film, itself based... More >>

Chicha Libre

Barbes : 9:30 p.m. every Mon.

Jim Caruso & Billy Stritch

Bemelmans Bar : 9:00 p.m. every Sun.

Two of the town’s most sophisticated goofballs sing, play and generally throw a party not exactly like the one the pair of them toss at Birdland on Monday nights but just as much fun. They’ve got something of that old Bob Hope-Bing Crosby chemistry going for them, which ain’t... More >>

Mandingo Ambassadors

Barbes : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

Guinean guitarist Mamady "Djelike" Kouyate came of age among such legendary 1970s guitarcentric combos as the Horoya Band and Bembeya Jazz, which blended Cuban rumba with traditional balafon-based sounds.

Bowery Electric : 10:00 p.m. every Mon.

Anyone can queue MP3s through Serato, some can play sets with their collection of 12-inches, but a DJ night with only 45s?

Slavic Soul Party are Eastern Europe's answer to the funk (and "Grunt") of the J.B.'s or, more recently, the Budos Band. On their recordings, and every Tuesday at Barbès, the 10-person brass ensemble pins Gypsy melodies against the sort of jazzy r&b horn collages you hear in movies... More >>

Las Vegas was once the go-to spot for legendary musicians looking to settle down for a residency, but it looks like MSG and Billy Joel have found a way to take that concept home to New York. After playing a New Year's Eve show at Barclays, the Bronx-born, Long Island-bred performer, who has... More >>

Jeff Koons: A Retrospective

Whitney Museum Of American Art : 11:00 a.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until October 19

Any chance to see Tony–winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) on the boards is not to be missed, but his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder should be a treat eight times over. In this story, gentleman Monty (played by Bryce Pinkham) has... More >>
