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 were pre-empted this week for WBAI’s Winter Fund Drive. We expect to be back on 2/21, but we’ll keep you updated. File this under “better alte than never”, but there are quite a few good picks out there.
Bassist Bob Cranshaw is at Smoke on February 10-11 with the Sean Lyons Quintet.
Vocalist Kurt Elling is at Jazz at Lincoln Center for a Frank Sinatra tribute on the 12-13.
Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane is at Princeton University’s McCarter Theater in NJ on the 12th and at SUNY Purchase College’s Performing Arts Center on the 13th.
Drummer Michael Carvin is at Columbia University’s Low Library on the 13th.
Vocalist Catherine Russell is at William Paterson University in NJ on the 13th.
Saxophonist Oliver Lake is at Aljira Contemporary Arts Center in Newark NJ on the 13th with Marty Erlich’s Quartet and at Bard College on the 15th.
Saxophonist Gary Bartz is at the Blue Note on February 15 and March 1 with pianist McCoy Tyner. 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.
Harpist Brandee Younger is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club for an album release show on February 17.
Pianist Randy Weston is at New School Univesity’s Tishman Auditorium on February 18 with Senegalese Master Drummers in a tribute to Doudou N’Diaye Rose.
Pianist Harold Mabern is at Smoke for The new Drum Battle from February 19-21.
Drummer and percussionist Bobby Sanabria is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club with Joe Chambers on the 23-24th.
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.
