Music is a generous muse for Mr. Abraham, who creates evocative contemporary work from sounds that span decades. He's had a long and interesting dialogue with jazz, a recent highlight of which is "The Gettin'," set to music by the Grammy winner Robert Glasper and inspired by Max Roach's protest album "We Insist!" That work returns on a program that also includes "Absent Matter," created with the jazz drummer Otis Brown III, and "The Quiet Dance," a short quintet accompanied by jazz piano, played live.
