David Berkman Quartet @ Smoke 28 – 1

Improvising is usually about forging new routes through a melodic maze, and for years the pianist has dedicated himself to the swinging side of the excursion (key album title: Start Here, Finish There). He’s particularly adept at building very hip bands, and this outfit, with Dayna Stephens, Ugonna Okegwo, and Rudy Royston, is bound to be a hoot.

8 pm + 10 pm + 11:30 pm. $30. Smoke, 2751 Broadway. 212-864-6662.
