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.
 
The New York Chapter of the AACM’s monthlong 50th anniversary celebration at the Community Church of New York on E 35th St wraps up on the 30 with the AACM All Stars featuring Dr. Muhal Richard Abrams on piano.
 
Poet jessica Care moore has an album release party at the Blue Note on October 30th.
 
Trombonist and seashellist Steve Turre is at Iridium with a Rahsaan Roland Kirk tribute from October 30 – November 1.
 
Pianist Vijay Iyer is busy right now. He kicks off a year-long residency at the Met Museum on the 30th, is at the Jazz Gallery on the 6 and 7 and presents the Veteran’s Dreams Project at the Met Museum of Art on the 12.
 
Finally, vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater is at the Apollo Theater on the 31st.
 
Guitarist Marc Ribot is at the Village Vanguard from November 3-7 with Electric Masada, John Zorn and others and organist John Medeski takes the stage on the 8th with Simulacrum.
