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.
Program alert: We’re off the air this week and our February 7th show is pre-empted for WBAI’s Winter Fund Drive. We expect to be back on 2/21, but we’ll keep you updated. Things are quiet this week, but there are still a few good picks out there.
Saxophonist Gary Bartz is at the Blue Note on February 1 with pianist McCoy Tyner. They’re also there on the 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.
Guitarist Julian Lage is at The Stone on February 7.
Bassist Bob Cranshaw is at Smoke on February 10-11 with the Sean Lyons Quintet.
Harpist Brandee Younger is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club for an album release show on February 17.
That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl is back on WBAI‘s airwaves on February 21st. We’ll also have another edition of “On the Bandstand” online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.
