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.
We’re off this week, but expect to be back on air on February 21st. Until then, there are quite a few shows so let’s get started.
Saxophonist Oliver Lake is 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.
Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane is at the Jazz Gallery on the 18th with James Carney’s sextet.
Low brass specialist on tuba Joe Daley is at Terra Blues with Hazmat Modine on the 20th.
Pianist Harold Mabern is at Smoke for The new Drum Battle from February 19-21.
Trombonist Craig Harris is at Harlem’s Rendall Memorial Presbyterian Church for a W.E.B. DuBois Jazz Celebration on the 23rd.
Drummer and percussionist Bobby Sanabria is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club with Joe Chambers on the 23-24th.
Saxophonist Kamasi Washington is at Webster Hall on February 24th.
Pianist Michele Rosewoman is at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem for a listening party and talk on “Jazz From an African Perspective” on the 25th.
Bassist Christian McBride is at Jazz at Lincoln Center with Jonathan Batiste on the 26th.
Vocalist René Marie is at Ocean County College in Tom’s River NJ on February 26th and The Side Door in Old Lyme CT on the 27th.
Drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club from February 29-March 1 with Gerald Clayton.
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.
