Matt Wilson

Saturday: After twice delaying the in-person release party for Matt Wilson & His Orchestra’s alternately playful and serene debut album, “When I Was a Writer,” the Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter of Trip Shakespeare notoriety is going about it another way with a bimonthly web series called “Into Dreams,” streaming from his basement. He’s promising songs from the new record for this first installment as well as “possibly a hijink.” The dude has always been a singular talent. (7 p.m. Sat., or YouTube).

Thursday: There is a good reason Twin Cities jazz vocalist Ammons called her 2019 album “Genealogy.” Her grandfather was esteemed pianist Albert Ammons, and her uncle was noted tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons. A Chicago native, she moved to the Twin Cities to be close to relatives. With an approach that evokes 1950s pop/jazz stars, she has a way with standards, blues and Brazilian music. Ammons will be featured on the next installment of Twin Cities Jazz Fest Live. (7 p.m. Thu.,
