Join Teaneck-based trumpeter Jordan Hirsch on Wednesday, August 5, for an entertaining evening as he explores the musical crossroads of Yiddish vaudeville, early hot jazz, and swing music, leading an all-star ensemble of jazz and Yiddish stalwarts, including the legendary pianist Peter Sokolow. 7 p.m., Museum at Eldridge Street, 12 Eldridge St., Manhattan. Call (212) 219-0302.
