Product Description

Craig has one of those wonderful, good tenor sax sounds that have been missing. He's a lyricist; he can play pretty, but he can also fire it up.' Betty Carter
Craig Handy famously performed and recorded with many jazz stars including Betty Carter, Herbie Hancock, John Scofield and Dee Dee Bridgewater. He is a member of the jazz all star group The Cookers, touring globally with these. The album is a New Orleans take of the music related to late organist Jimmy Smith. The album features guest appearances by Wynton Marsalis and Dee Dee Bridgewater. The 2nd Line Smith band is a true live band and very exciting to watch and hear. Despite being a sought after sideman, Craig will tour 2nd Line Smith globally. From the time he arrived in New York at age 23 in 1986, saxophonist Craig Handy was acknowledged as a musician with big, burly tenor sound, sharp wit, and above all, individuality. Craig Handy will undoubtedly fulfill many more dreams, as he strives to contribute his own perfect choruses to jazz history

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well done to Okeh records for finally signing Craig Handy and letting him record his first album in over a decade. The project is an interesting one with a tribute to the great Jimmy Smith but with a twist: that's where the 2nd line part of the equation comes into play as each piece is set to a New Orleans 2nd line beat.
The energy is high, the solos are lively and the whole album has an infectious, almost danceable quality to it.
There is also a nice growling trumpet solo from Wynton Marsalis on "Got my Mojo" and DeeDee Bridgewater adds some nice vocals to "Sunny side of the street".
A novel and interesting project from the under rated Craig Handy.
Buy it and dance the night away....

Great melding of straightahead jazz and New Orleans rhythms; connecting the roots of African American music with the new. Wonderful musicianship.

Exceptional New Orleans flavored Post-Bop feast! 9 Feb 2014
By William J. Swiggard - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Mojo Workin' features what may be the greatest single trumpet solo I ever heard from guest Wynton Marsalis, who literally makes the horn scream like a raspy human voice, with joy and ecstasy. The other solos in that cut and all the other tracks are equally joyful and virtuosic on this beautifully performed and produced album, but Marsalis sounds - words fail - supernatural. These words do not fail me, however.... Listen up! Buy this album immediately!

Fantastic. Great New Orleans style with plenty of Hammond B-3 organ and wonderful jams. The guitar work is also exceptional. Nothing ground breaking, just good solid jazz with a feel good vibe. Highly recommended.
