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 back on air on March 6. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention WBAI’s Winter Fund Drive that’s continuing for another week. A donation — even a small one — in the name of our show will help enormously. And there’s always live music going on, so let’s dive in.
Drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club from February 29-March 1 with Gerald Clayton.
Saxophonist Gary Bartz is at the Blue Note on March 1 in the last of a series of shows with pianist McCoy Tyner. Tyner’s been less public lately, so it’s a good idea to catch him and see the last remaining member of Coltrane’s classic band in action.
Also at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club is saxophonist Tia Fuller who leads a quartet including bassist Mimi Jones on March 2nd.
Guitarist Marc Ribot is at Lincoln Center’s Atrium on March 3 for a free concert with with Los Cubanos Postizos and the same ensemble will be at Le Poisson Rouge on the 4th.
Drummer and percussionist Bobby Sanabria leads Quarteto Ache in two lunchtime performances at NJPAC in Newark on March 6.
Bassist Mimi Jones is at the Pregones Theater in The Bronx on March 12th.
That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl is back on WBAI‘s airwaves on March 6. We’ll also have another edition of “On the Bandstand” online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.
