David Berkman Quartet @ Smalls Jan 2-3

The pianist’s Live At Smoke floated by during our recent Sandy flood, so I dried it off and spun it again: mainstream jazz with just enough twists and turns to let you know that Team Berkman is always sniffing out ways to give the familiar a sense of adventure. He’s known for killer rhythm sections, and this foursome boasts one, but what you’ll truly notice are the sage idiosyncrasies of the lines created by trumpeter Tom Harrell. 

Small’s – 9:30 pm 212-252-5091 $15. 183 West 10th.
