Friday & Saturday, January 26th & 27th: The Curtis Lundy Quartet with Craig Handy

January 26 @ 7:30 pm January 27 @ 11:00 pm

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY SHOWTIMES: 7:30PM AND 9:30PM. Curtis Lundy is arguably one of the most prolific in-demand bassists on the modern jazz scene. He is a disciple of the mainstream straight ahead hard bop school.  Jazz Times calls Lundy “one of the most spiritually uplifting bassists on the jazz scene today.”  Bags & Trane is an album by Milt Jackson and John Coltrane, released in 1961. Taking its title from Jackson and Coltrane’s nicknames, it is the only collaborative record by the pair, although only Jackson contributed original compositions.

Tenor saxophonist Craig Handy attended North Texas State University. His distinctive sound and authentic instrumental prowess were redoubtable traits immediately noticed by artists of stature, especially those committed to nurturing new talent on the bandstand and road.

Handy moved to New York in 1986 and began several associations with formidable artists including master drummers Art Blakey and Roy Haynes, South African melodist Abdullah Ibrahim, and the Mingus Dynasty Band. During a Mingus Dynasty engagement, one audience member – none other than an impressed Bill Cosby – approached Handy and eventually invited him to be the featured soloist in his sitcom’s music theme for 1989-90’s “The Cosby Show”. 

Lundy and Handy reunite on The Velvet Note stage on January 26th and 27th, and you want to be sure to catch the wave!
