Bandy has performed with Joe Henderson, Betty Carter, Pharoah Sanders, Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, George Benson, Yusef Lateef and many more, securing his status as a living legend. Of Greg, the New Yorker, wrote, "...one of those rare old-school drummers who remind you what the art of jazz percussion is all about, adds class as well as rhythmic friction to Bartz's band." His playing is described as "progressive, not nostalgic, employing music from all over the globe." Bandy is a staple of jazz festivals the world over.
