bandstand_picSuga in My Bowl radio presents a new feature, On The Bandstand where we collect upcoming NYC area shows from current and past Suga’ guests.

There are no immediate area shows for tonight’s guest, saxophonist Rene McLean, but watch this space for when he’ll be around next. Fortunately, there’s other music for you to catch this week.

The musical Lady Day continues its run at the Little Schubert Theater at 422 W. 42nd St starring vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater as Billie Holiday.

Drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts plays with Niels Lan Doky at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club on November 13th and leads a quartet at Brooklyn’s Shapeshifter Lab on the 15th.

Harpist Brandee Younger appears with a quartet for free on November 14th, 7 PM, at the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library in their Dweck Center.

Drummer and bandleader Bobby Sanabria appears on November 16th with the Eugene Marlow Heritage Ensemble at the Congregation Adas Emuno in Leonia, NJ.

Craig_HarrisTrombonist and multi-instrumentalist Craig Harris appears on November 17th 3 PM at the Mount Morris Association Presbyterian Church. That’s at 122nd and Mount Morris Park West in Manhattan and admission is less than the price of a movie. Details are on Craig’s website.

Looking ahead to next week, on the 22nd, pianist Michele Rosewoman and her “New Yor-Uba” small ensemble will be at the Clemente Soto Velez Center on the Lower East Side as part of Arts for Art’s Latin Free Jazz mini-festival.

Finally, organist John Medeski will be at Le Poisson Rouge on November 24th as part of a 78th birthday celebration for Roswell Rudd.

That’s all for now. Thanks to our new, expanded schedule, we now appear weekly except for the last Sunday of the month. Tune in to the next Suga’ in My Bowl on Sunday, November 17th on WBAI, where we’ll have another edition of “On the Bandstand”.

A reminder that WBAI radio is still in serious financial trouble. Help keep Suga’ (and all your other favorite shows) on the air by pledging whatever you can. Consider becoming a “WBAI Buddy” with a monthly pledge.

Hank Williams is an associate producer for Suga’ in My Bowl on WBAI Radio and webmaster for the Suga’ and Behind the Mic sites. He is also a PhD candidate in English and Africana Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center and teaches at Hunter and Lehman Colleges and The City College of New York.
