Kenny Barron + Dave Holland @ Birdland  22- 25   

It’s finesse city as the the pianist and bassist roll through a handful of fetching melodies on the new The Art of Conversation (Impulse!). They’ve been refining their duo maneuvers for a couple years now, and as this mid-town date kicks off an extended tour, buoyancy and bounce are up front, reminding listeners that oomph can come places other than a trap set. Perhaps most enticing is the actual sound of of their instruments meshing. Hope they add “Autumn In New York” to the book. 

8:30 pm + 11 pm   $30   Birdland, 315 W 44th Street. 212-581-3080   MACNIE
