Last week’s show was a special fund drive edition. We played excerpts of the “Who Owns Music” panel discussion Suga’ sponsored earlier this year. If you can pledge for the DVD, you’ll get access to the full discussion and all proceeds go to WBAI and help us stay on the air. And, as always, even a relatively small pledge of $5 helps a lot and sends the message to station management that people want to hear jazz and will support it. Thanks for whatever you can do to keep us rolling along! Now let’s see what’s going on musically this week.
 
Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane is at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club on the 29th.
