Handy returns for his second round of Holiday musings with his Keys allies.

A prolific composer with a deceptively slim discography, Handy has worked in the Bay Area over the years mostly as a sideman, including concerts with the Mingus Big Band, trumpet great Freddie Hubbard, and piano star Herbie Hancock (at the concert that christened Yoshi’s on Jack London Square in 1997). This week, Handy is back at Keys to reprise his stellar Christmas debut run with Jazz Messenger Essiet Okon Essiet.

“Peter Watrous of the New York Times describes Handy as…….”all grace and liquid ease..”
