Program note: Suga’ in My Bowl has changed to a biweekly schedule on WBAI Radio and now alternates Sunday nights with Sports Qualified at our usual 11 PM -1 AM time period. You’ll get the same great show; just every other week! So mark your calendars or just keep up with us via our Facebook page, the blog here, or our main website and we’ll keep track of the schedule for you.

This week’s show features an interview with pianist Geri Allen done by special guest co-host Columbia University’s Dr. Farah Jasmine Griffin. See her this week at the memorial for bassist Charlie Haden (details below). This (nearly) wraps up our coverage on the 2015 Winter Jazz Fest. Check back later this week for a review and scroll down the page for our cheat sheet and preview of the festival. And we have other live music this week.

There will be a memorial for the late saxophonist Will Connell on the 12th at The Jazz Church, St. Peter’s. Saxophonist Oliver Lake, multi-instrumentalist Charles Gayle, and trombonist Craig Harris will be just a few of the many artists performing appearing at the memorial. You are all cordially invited ….

The big news is a memorial and celebration of the life of the late bassist Charlie Haden; at the Town Hall on January 13th with Ruth Cameron-Haden, Pat Metheny, Brandee Younger, low bass specialist Joe Daley, pianist Geri Allen, and many more. Admission is free, but organizers will take donations for the Haden CalArts Scholarship fund to help music students. They also recommend arriving early, since space is limited and it will start and end on time.

It’s the very last call for reservations to see vocalist Catherine Russell and master drummer Michael Carvin at Mohonk Mountain House’s Jazz on the Mountain from January 16-19th.

Pianist Marc Cary returns to the Cell Theatre with his Focus trio on January 17th.

Dr. Leonard Jeffries will have a birthday celebration on the 18th at Harlem’s National Black Theater from 4-9 PM. Admission’s free, but be prepared to make a donation. Call 201-837-1355 for details and or see the event’s poster (opens as a photo) on Facebook.
