Compositor, corneta y director de bandas estadounidense, conocido por integrar elementos del blues con el ragtime, lo que cambió el curso de la música popular. Handy trabajó como solista y director de varias bandas en los albores del s. XX, para convertirse primero en Memphis (1908) y después en Nueva York, (1918) en editor musical. Las composiciones de Handy, como "St. Louis Blues, "Beale Street Blues y "Memphis Blues, fueron las favoritas de cantantes e instrumentistas en la década de 1920, ayudando a codificar el blues como un marco dentro del cual se improvisa.
