Expanding upon the artistic and critical success of his 2012 double album By a Little Light, Chicago bassist-composer Matt Ulery returns with In the Ivory on Dave Douglas’ acclaimed independent label Greenleaf Music – eighty minutes of resplendent, lyrical, transportive, and impeccably performed chamber-jazz music. Inspired and motivated by the musical and personal relationships developed while recording and performing By a Little Light–Ulery’s most ambitious project to date–In the Ivory explores the idea of consciousness through patient, lyrical composition.

★ Dave Douglas Quintet (Tuesday through Aug. 23) The industrious trumpeter-composer Dave Douglas broke in a terrific new band last year, releasing two albums on his own Greenleaf label: “Be Still,” a contemplative recasting of Protestant hymns, and “Time Travel,” a more rambunctious postbop outing. The quintet — with Jon Irabagon on saxophones, Matt Mitchell on piano, Linda Oh on bass and Rudy Royston on drums — will most likely draw from both releases here. At 8:30 and 11 p.m., Birdland, 315 West 44th Street, Clinton, 212-581-3080,birdlandjazz.com; $40 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

These two dates will feature the usual working quintet featuring Jon Irabagon on saxophone, Matt Mitchell on piano, Linda Oh on bass and Rudy Royston on drums. The quintet will then hurry back across the Atlantic to New York for a weeklong engagement at Birdland from August 19th through August 23rd. We hope to see you!
