Jazz fans are spoiled for choice over the next seven days. The great Pol­ish trum­peter To­masz Stanko (above) is back with his quar­tet: he’s in Dublin (Tues­day), Cork (Wed­nes­day), Na­van (Thurs­day) and in Bray, Cork again and Lim­er­ick next week. In Gal­way, a mod­estly scaled but in­ter­est­ing fes­ti­val opens tonight with the ex­cel­lent bop-ori­ented pi­anist Roberto Ma­gris. He will be fol­lowed to­mor­row by US pi­anist Benny Lackner and on Sun­day by singers Honor Hef­fer­nan and Aoife Doyle. Singer Dorothy Mur­phy will tour next week with her group Cir­cle­ways; they’ll be in Cork (Tues­day), Lim­er­ick (Wed­nes­day) and Water­ford (Thurs­day). And French pi­anist Fran­cois Cou­turier brings his su­perb Nostal­ghia Quar­tet to the Na­tional Con­cert Hall next Tues­day. RAY COMISKEY
