Very Handy!

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
New Orleans altoist Captain John Handy was quite busy during March-May 1966, recording over five albums' worth of material and touring on the East Coast. This 1993 CD brings back one of the rarest of all the dates that trombonist Big Bill Bissonette recorded in the 1960s.

In addition to the original seven numbers which put the focus on Handy's playing, five previously unissued cuts have been added, including a blazing version of "Running Wild."

Handy and Remington work off each other quite well, and there are many heated moments on this exciting set.
