Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Originally created as a one-off to fill a gig at the Hungry Brain, the Quin Kirchner Group is now something of a regular entity thanks to its members’ enjoyment and abilities to skillfully improvise. The quartet’s jazzy style is more accessible than the type of experimental/free jazz one might imagine from an improv outfit; according to alto/soprano saxophonist Charles Gorczynski, the group’s songs aim to sound more like compositions, using repeated melodies and apparent sections. This makes sense in the context of the members’ other groups: Gorcynzki’s Colorlist, upright bassist Matt Ulery’s Loom and clarinetist / tenor saxophonist Elliot Bergman’s NOMO, for which Kirchner also drums. The night’s other set belongs to the collaboration of bass clarinetist Jason Stein, pianist Jim Baker and Josh Abrams; a trio with its own esteemed members that should rely more on solos and less on conventional structure.
