Golden State NY Times Preview

Harris Eisenstadt’s Golden State (Thursday) A venturesome drummer and composer, Mr. Eisenstadt likes to walk the line between free-form exploration and meticulous composition, and this texture-rich new ensemble — with the flutist Nicole Mitchell, the bassoonist Sara Schoenbeck and the bassist Mark Dresser — should suit that purpose handily. (Mr. Dresser will perform an improvised solo set at 7:30 p.m..) At 8:15 p.m., Greenwich House Music School, 46 Barrow Street, West Village, (212) 242-4770;; $15, $10 for students. (Chinen)
