It's been far too long since we've heard from potent saxophonist Craig Handy on record, and he's not been on the live scene too much, either. That all changes with the welcome release of Craig Handy & 2nd Line Smith, his new album on the revived OKeh label, on which the leader digs deep into a mix of groovy organ jazz and NOLA parade-band strut for a downright funky good time.
