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 if you missed last week’s show with saxophonist and flutist T.K. Blue, head over to our archives where you can hear that and 7 years of archived shows. A quick program note while we have your attention: we’re pre-empted next week for WBAI’s summer fund drive. Those of you following the news have likely heard of the station’s woes with the transmitter at the Empire State Building. If not, the summary is that the station’s in deep debt for seriously escalating rent. Anything you can pledge is needed now more than ever. And we have other listings for you this week.

Saxophonist James Brandon Lewis is at the Bowery Poetry Room on July 30 with Heroes are Gang Leaders.

Drummer Roy Haynes is at Subrosa with pianist Eddie Palmieri on July 31.

Saxophonist and flutist T.K. Blue has free outdoor concerts on 135th St in Harlem for the Jazzmobile series on August 1 and at Jazzmobile’s Grant’s Tomb concert on August 23rd.

Drummer Terri Lyne Carrington is at the Village Vanguard with a tribute to the late pianist Geri Allen from August 8-13. Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane appears as a special guest on the 12-13.

Saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club with Ulysses Owens’s big band from August 9-11.

Drummer J.T. Lewis is at Smoke from August 11-13 with Kevin Mahogany’s quartet.

Pianist Harold Mabern leads a trio at Smalls on August 15.

That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl is scheduled to be back on WBAI‘s airwaves on Sunday August 20 (we’re pre-empted on August 6). We’ll also have another edition of “On the Bandstand” online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.
