Blowing his mind

If you want adventure, rather than some cozy, affirming entertainment, Jon Irabagon is your man. Not that the 36-year-old Chicago-born jazz saxophonist doesn’t want you to get your money’s worth at one of his gigs, but his shows tend to keep one’s pulse racing and attention focused, while offering several toe-tapping slots en route.

Irabagon will open his fascinating box of musical tricks at the Levontin 7 club in Tel Aviv on Sunday and Monday (both 8 p.m.), alongside a couple of heavyweight collaborators in the form of bassist Mark Helias and drummer Barry Altschul.
