Craig Handy
Saxophonist Craig Handy is a musician's musician. Those “in the know" know about him, which is why he's been a first call player in New York for over two decades. He is a careful, thoughtful improviser--expansive and precise. His solos build on a rich knowledge of the tradition at the same time as they often set out for the edge, walk it, but never fall off. While he derives portions of his vocabulary from the'Trane/Shorter axis, there is a shrewd depth and broadness to his playing.

AAJ Contributor Robert Dugan spoke at length with Handy, recently, about his long career and illustrious associations. The result is an interview that not only provides some deep insight into Handy and his msic, but acts as a chronicle of the saxophonist/flautist's most important releases, both as a sideman and a leader.
