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.
 
Suga’ in My Bowl is off the air this week: we’re back on January 10th with our final preview of the 2016 Winter Jazz Fest with guitarist James “Blood” Ulmer! If you missed our last shows with promoter and WJF director Brice Rosenbloom or guitarist Julian Lage, then head on over to our our audio archives for that and much more. Now let’s take a look at some upcoming gigs.

Arts for Art (producers of the annual Vision Fest) are sponsoring a nearly monthlong “Justice is Compassion” festival at Clemente Soto Velez Center from January 4-24 with dancer Patricia Nicholson Parker, bassist William Parker and many more.
 
Looking a little further ahead, the annual Winter Jazz Fest blows into town from January 13-17 with so many past, present (and future) Suga’ guests that it needs its own coverage, which we’ll get to this week. But for now, you can head on over to their site and check out the complete rundown for yourself. If that’s too overwhelming, don’t worry, we’ll have you covered with a cheat sheet like we did last year.

Also at The Stone is pianist Vijay Iyer, who’s there on the 13th with Matana Roberts.

For those of you outside the listening area, Metheny’s website also has links for their entire tour, which will cover much of the US and Europe.

That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl will be back on WBAI, next week and we’ll have another edition of “On the Bandstand” online here with a fresh set of listings.

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.
