Joe Locke on Hadley Caliman's "Gratitude"

Joe Locke on Hadley Caliman's "Gratitude"Last September, Joe was honoured to be invited by Saxophonist Hadley Caliman, to guest on his upcoming recording "Gratitude" (Origin), his first in over 30 years.

Caliman, one of the preeminent post-bop saxophonists alive, studied with Dexter Gordon, played with Gerald Wilson’s Big Band, the Bobby Bryant Band, and Mongo Santamaria in the ’50s. He later toured throughout the US and Europe, and recorded with Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson and Santana through the ’70s.

The new album, which also features drummer Joe La Barbera, trumpeter Thomas Marriott and bassist Phil Sparks, will be launched in style with a release party on March 21, 2008 in Seattle at Tula’s Jazz Club.

Joe Locke 'Force of Four' - recorded

A unique quartet, made so by the melding of four distinct musical personalities into a fresh sounding ensemble. The influences of New York, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Philadelphia come together in this group, as well as all the places travelled by these four player/composers.

Earlier this month, Joe took this new band project into the studio to record the forthcoming album "Force of Four", which is going to be released later this year on the Origin label.

"Force of Four" (feat. Robert Rodriguez, Johnathan Blake , Ricardo Rodriguez) will be touring this summer, with dates in Europe and the US. Details coming soon on www.joelocke.com/appear.htm
