The trumpeter Keyon Harrold pairs notes of Christian Scott’s smokiness with the brassy bounce of Freddie Hubbard. He leads groups that synthesizes a multitude of black music traditions, not unlike his classmates from the New School: the pianist and producer Robert Glapser and the neo-soul singer Bilal. He’s toured with a range of acts, from Gregory Porter and D’Angelo to Cirque du Soleil and Rihanna. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
