As the United States celebrates Thanksgiving over the next several days, there’s great live music being made around the world from Julia Bullock, Yussef Dayes, Tigran Hamasyan, Gabriel Kahane, The Magnetic Fields, and Cécile McLorin Salvant.

Julia Bullock joins London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, for whom she is this season’s Featured Artist, and conductor Jordan de Souza for two concerts in England, at Bedford Corn Exchange tonight and Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in London on Thursday. In Bedford, they perform Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915, as Bullock and the orchestra do with conductor Christian Reif on her debut solo album, Walking in the Dark, which was recently nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album. In London, Bullock joins the Philharmonia to perform three songs by George Gershwin and two Langston Hughes settings by the poet’s friend and fellow Harlem Renaissance luminary Margaret Bonds. On both nights, the orchestra performs of Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony and William Grant Still’s First Symphony, “Afro-American.” Bullock is “one of the singular artists of her generation,” says the New York Times, “a singer of enveloping tone, startlingly mature presence and unusually sophisticated insight into culture, society and history.”

Multi-instrumentalist, producer, and composer Yussef Dayes, currently touring the US with music from his acclaimed new album, Black Classical Music, plays Thalia Hall in Chicago tonight, Variety Playhouse in Atlanta on Thursday, Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte on Saturday, and City Winery in Nashville on Sunday. Last week, Dayes shared a live-performance video filmed in the Malibu mountains, backed by a hazy, golden-hour sunset. He and longtime collaborators Rocco Palladino, Venna, Elijah Fox, and Alexander Bourt perform thirty minutes of music from Black Classical Music and more. You can watch it here. Black Classical Music has just landed at No. 6 on Rough Trade's list of the Best Albums of the Year.

Tigran Hamasyan concludes a three-night residency at the Armenian National Opera and Ballet Theatre in his hometown of Yerevan with a performance of his trio—bassist Evan Marian and drummer Nate Wood—featuring music from his 2022 album, StandArt, tonight. The album, Hamayan’s first of American standards, led Jazziz to call him “one of today’s most revered and distinctive voices in jazz and creative music.” “This is jazz for people who like to sit at the edge of their seats,” says PopMatters. “StandArt is a dissection and reformulation of the Great American Songbook that holds on to the essence of the numbers it pays homage to while lending them a modern, high-fidelity sheen and Hamasyan’s mastermind perception.”

Composer, multi-instrumentalist, and singer Gabriel Kahane joins the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and his father, pianist and conductor Jeffrey Kahane, at Ordway Concert Hall in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, for a program of works by Jerome Kern, Connie Converse, Paul Simon, and George Gershwin, as well as several by Kahane fils himself: songs from his Nonesuch albums Magnificent Bird and Book of Travelers, and Heirloom, the concerto he wrote for his father. Jeffrey Kahane released an album of Bach works on Nonesuch in 1986.

The Magnetic Fields conclude their European tour this weekend, performing at Floyd in Athens tonight, before heading to Austria for festival sets at Dom Im Berg in Graz on Friday, as part of the Autumn Leaves Festival, and Porgy & Bess in Vienna on Saturday, for Blue Bird Festival. The band’s 2004 Nonesuch debut album, i is now available on vinyl for the first time, on limited-edition 140-gram, gold-colored vinyl, here. “Stephin Merritt is an incomparable lyricist capable of balancing arch wit with painfully acute observation,” the Guardian said upon the album's release. “The most exciting dissector of modern love around.”

Cécile McLorin Salvant and her quintet—pianist Elio Villafranca, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, drummer Savannah Harris, and percussionist Weedie Braimah—bring music from her new, Grammy-nominated album, Melusine, and more to Europe for three festivals: two in France, at Théâtre Roger Barat in Herblay on Thursday, for Jazz au fil de l’Oise Festival, and Opéra De Limoges on Sunday, for Festival Éclats d’Email Jazz, and one in Spain, at the Fernán Gómez Centro Cultural De La Villa in Madrid on Saturday, for Festival Internacional JazzMadrid. Melusine was nominated for the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album; the track “Fenestra” is up for Best Arrangement, Instrumental and Vocals for Godwin Louis’ arrangement. Salvant has released a three-part video series of performances of songs from the album filmed in The Met Cloisters’ Unicorn Tapestries Room; you can watch “Dame Iseut” here, “D’un feu secret” here, and the title track here.
