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.

We’re off the air this week, but if you missed last week’s show with African percussion master and longtime Randy Weston band member Baba Neil Clarke, head over to our archives, there you can listen to that and nearly a decade of past shows. He’ll be performing a Mongo Santamaria tribute at the 47th annual International African Arts Festival in Brooklyn on Sunday July 1. It’s an outdoor concert and included in the festival’s $5 suggested daily admission. Also at the festival is saxophonist Rene McLean, who closes out the festival on the evening of July 4. The festival runs from June 30-July 4 with vendors, performances, a documentary film festival, and children’s programming. And we have more listings for you this week.

Pianist Harold Mabern is at Smoke in a continuing Monday night series on July 2 and 9.

Percussionist Steve Kroon leads a septet at the Jazz Standard on July 3.

Pianist Barry Harris leads a trio at the Village Vanguard from July 3-8.

Pianist Marc Cary’s Harlem Sessions returns as a Saturday night series with late sets at Smoke on July 7 and 14.

Hammond B3 Organ master Dr. Lonnie Smith leads a trio at the Jazz Standard from July 11-15.

Drummer Terri Lyne Carrington is at the Metrotech Commons in downtown Brooklyn for a free lunchtime performance on July 12 as part of their R&B Festival series.

Guitarist Mary Halvorson is at the Village Vanguard with Thumbscrew from July 17-22.

That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl will be back on WBAI‘s airwaves on Sunday July 8. We’ll also have another edition of “On the Bandstand” online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.
