The Wine and Jazz Sail featuring 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.
