Claire Fischer, John Handy

02/03/12 9:00PM By George Thomas

We note the passing of composer, arranger and pianist Claire Fischer. Herbie Hancock, quoted in a New York Times  obit, felt that Fischer "was a major influence on my harmonic concept." We also celebrate the birthday of saxophonist & bandleader John Handy.
