From Dexter Gordon to Freddie Hubbard to Santana through to his recent
critically-acclaimed "Gratitude," Hadley Caliman's 78 years has been
filled with the kind of personal achievement that all creative artists
strive for. On "Straight Ahead," Caliman visits some of his favorite
tunes including his old friend Harold Land's "Rapture," the Lee Morgan
classic "Totem Pole," and with his own original "Cigar Eddie," he
provides a spirited opening to another classic recording. Featuring
his working Seattle band with trumpeter Thomas Marriott, pianist Eric
Verlinde, Phil Sparks on bass, and Matt Jorgensen on drums, "Straight
Ahead" is another clear example of a living legend in top form.
