Sangam in New York

EVEN in an average week there tends to be too much jazz in New York for any one person to see. But the next two weeks are too-much squared, with two major jazz festivals, JVC and Vision, happening simultaneously and the city's nightclubs doing their best to keep up the momentum for concertgoers both local and international.

June 22

SANGAM (JVC) The new trio of the saxophonist Charles Lloyd, the Indian percussionist Zakir Hussain and the drummer Eric Harland proves Mr. Lloyd's curiosity and sensitivity. Where it could have been a baggy bridges-between-cultures project, it's totally condensed and alive, making the most of Mr. Lloyd's prized lyricism as well as of the two percussionists' melodic skills. 8:30 p.m., Zankel Hall; $50.
