Beyond Category: Craig Handy and 2nd Line Smith

Saxophonist Craig Handy made his name as a “young lion” of jazz playing with artists such as Herbie Hancock and Dee Dee Bridgewater. He has an exciting new band called 2nd Line Smith, which combines the organ-jazz repertoire of Jimmy Smith with the “second line” rhythms of New Orleans parade music. Craig Handy joins Beyond Category host Eric Felten at Washington’s Bohemian Caverns jazz club to talk about the music and perform with his new band.
