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.
