Hadley Caliman Passes

Longtime saxman out of California Hadley Caliman dies of Liver failure yesterday. I was so blessed to have spoken with him several years ago. I interviewed him for my radio show in 2006. He was very gracious and cordial. I first became aware of him thru one of his Catalyst recordings of the early 70s. He led an exciting but atypical jazzman's life. The entire world of jazz owes him a bit of gratitude.
