“John Handy is living jazz history” – San Francisco Chronicle

John Handy has written a number of highly acclaimed, original compositions. “Spanish Lady” and “If Only We Knew both earned Grammy nominations for performance and composition. The popular jazz/blues/funk vocal crossover hit, “Hard Work”, brought him fame in another realm; while “Blues for Louis Jordan” displayed his talents in rhythm and blues. He has written many compositions of various sizes for both instrumental and vocal groups. His more extensive works include “Concerto for Jazz Soloist and Orchestra” which was premiered by the Parnassus Symphony Orchestra; and “Scheme Number One” which was lauded as a fine example of fixed and improvised music by the great composer, Igor Stravinsky.
