Welcome to Suga in My Bowl radio‘s weekly feature, On The Bandstand, where we collect upcoming NYC area shows from current and past Suga’ guests. We’re online weekly and on the air on NYC’s WBAI-FM radio alternate Sunday nights from 11 PM -1 AM. Keep up with us via Facebook, the blog here, or our main website, or Twitter and we’ll keep track of the schedule for you.
This week’s guest is pianist Billy Childs! You can see him at Jazz Standard this week — from January 26-28. And we have lots more music for you this week as the city digs out of the storm.
Saxophonist Gary Bartz is at the Blue Note on the 25 with legendary pianist McCoy Tyner. They’re also there on February 1, 15, and March 1. Tyner’s been less public lately, so it’s a good idea to catch one of these dates and see the last remaining member of Coltrane’s band in action.
Also at the Blue Note is legendary drummer Roy Haynes from January 26-27.
Vibraphonist Gary Burton, bassist Christian McBride, and saxophonist Tia Fuller are at Birdland with the Mack Avenue Records Superband from January 26-30.
Drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts is at the Jazz Standard with saxophonist Jimmy Greene’s Quartet from January 29-31.
Saxophonist Kenny Garrett is at Iridium from January 29-31.
Guitarist Julian Lage is at The Stone on February 7.
Drummer Craig Haynes has an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to support making a CD and DVD of his band’s performance at the 2016 Dakar Goree Jazz Festival.
That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl is back on WBAI‘s airwaves on February 7th–we hope. We’re awaiting confirmation of the schedule for the winter fund drive. We’ll also have another edition of “On the Bandstand” online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.
