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

Program note: Suga’ in My Bowl has changed to a biweekly schedule on WBAI Radio and will now alternate Sunday nights with Sports Qualified at our usual 11-1 AM time period. You’ll get the same great show; just every other week! So mark your calendars or just keep up with us via our Facebook page, the blog here, or our main website and we’ll keep track of the schedule for you.

Due to our new schedule, we were off the WBAI airwaves this week, but will be back on the 19th. Until then, you might take a look at our archives, which now have four years worth of shows, including our show with Pharaoh Sanders, who had a birthday on Monday. Meanwhile, there are other opportunities to see Suga’ guests in action.

Bassist Christian McBride will be in Brooklyn with Alicia Olatuja at the BRIC House Ballroom on October 16th.

Drummer Michael Carvin has a free concert at the Newark Museum as part of WBGO Radio’s Kids’ Jazz series on October 18th. Note that while admission is free, you need to have a child with you.

Pianist Randy Weston leads his African Rhythms Quintet with bassist Alex Blake at the Manhattan School of Music on October 17th.

On display until November 4th at the Wilmer Jennings Gallery is Visions, Roots, and Rhythms, visual art inspired by the musical collaboration of Randy Weston and Melba Liston. It features work from a number of visual artists, including trombonist (and former Suga’ guest) Dick Griffin.

Lastly, legendary pianist Barry Harris will be at the Flushing Town Hall theater in Queens on October 17th.

Bassist Mimi Jones will be appearing at the Upper West Side’s Bar Thalia on October 10th with her band. She’ll also be at The Lion in Greenwich Village on the 19th.

Looking ahead, drummer and percussionist Bobby Sanabria will be at Jazzmobile’s 50 Anniversary benefit concert on October 24th at Harlem’s First Corinthian Baptist Church and on October 25th at the Hostos Center for the Performing Arts in the South Bronx with Larry Harlow and the Latin Legends Big Band.

That’s all for now. With our new biweekly schedule, Suga’ in My Bowl is back on the WBAI airwaves next week, October 19th. We’ll have another edition of “On the Bandstand” on air and online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.
