The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley presents saxophonist Hadley Caliman with trumpeter Thomas Marriott. Joining them will be Bill Anschell (piano), Phil Sparks (bass) and Matt Jorgensen (drums). Show time is 7:30pm, doors will open at 6:00pm.
Tenor saxophonist Hadley Caliman is part of the living history of jazz music in America. From Dexter Gordon to Freddie Hubbard to Santana to Phoebe Snow 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. His influence on the sound of modern jazz music can be heard on many of his albums as a leader. On “Straight Ahead,” Hadley 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.
