bandstand_picSuga in My Bowl radio presents a new feature, On The Bandstand where we collect upcoming NYC area shows from current and past Suga’ guests.

We have some sad news to share also: poet, activist, writer, and jazz journalist Amiri Baraka has died. We interviewed him in 2011 and had planned to do a special show with him in 2014 looking back at his life in music. You can hear the show we did in Suga’ in My Bowl’s audio archives (scroll down the page).



Amiri’s wake and funeral will both be held in Newark, NJ. The Wake is Friday, January 17 from 4:00pm to 9:00pm at Metropolitan Baptist Church 149 Springfield Avenue, 07103. 973.642.2267

The Funeral is on Saturday, the 18th 10:00am at Newark Symphony Hall 1020 Broad Street. 973.643.8014.

Both locations are reachable by mass transit from New York City and it goes without saying that you should get there very early to be sure to get inside. Save the date: we received news at press time that there will be a memorial at the Schomburg on February 8th. We’ll provide more concrete details when we receive them.

We start this week’s listings with drummer Will Calhoun leads a trio at Iridium with pianist Marc Cary on Monday, January 13th.

Organist Akiko Tsuruga also has a show on the 13th at Kotobuki Restaurant in Manhattan and next Monday the 20th.

Pianist Diane Schuur leads an ensemble at Birdland from the 13th to the 18th.

Bassist Christian McBride leads a trio at the Village Vanguard from the 14th to the 19th.

Pianist Onaje Allen Gumbs appears at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s BAMCafe for free shows on the 17th and 18th.

Drummer Michael Carvin leads an ensemble at Jazz on the Mountain at the Mohonk Mountain House from the 17th to 19th near Bear Mountain.

Blueswoman Alexis P. Suter is at Iridium on Sunday the 19th.

That’s all for now. Tune in to the next Suga’ in My Bowl on Sunday, January 19th on WBAI, where we’ll have another edition of “On the Bandstand”.

A reminder that WBAI radio is still in serious financial trouble. Help keep Suga’ (and all your other favorite shows) on the air by pledging whatever you can or consider becoming a “WBAI Buddy” with a monthly pledge. If you missed last month’s mini fund drive, it’s not too late to pledge for our special Pat Metheny CD set or our “Brazilian Journey” special, which traces the evolution of Brazilian music styles.
