You can see drummer JT Lewis in action at the Harlemstage Gatehouse on the City College of New York campus with the Harriet Tubman band and singer Cassandra Wilson in a tribute to Henry Threadgill.

That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl is back on WBAI September 21st and we’ll have another edition of “On the Bandstand” on air and online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.

Hank Williams is an associate producer for Suga’ in My Bowl on WBAI Radio and webmaster for the Suga’ and Behind the Mic sites. He is also a PhD candidate in English and Africana Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center and teaches at Hunter and Lehman Colleges and The City College of New York.
