It is 1962 in central Los Angeles and a young 17 year-old tenor saxophonist named Pete Christlieb has met his idol. Hadley Caliman is only thirty years-old but has already made a name for himself as one of the jazz stars on the rise. Christlieb follows Caliman to his gigs throughout Los Angeles and at the end of the night the youngster is invited up on stage to sit in on a few tunes.

Hadley Caliman went on to perform with Freddie Hubbard, Santana, Mongo Santamaria and The Grateful Dead. Pete Christlieb has worked with Steely Dan, Tom Waits, Louie Bellson, Chet Baker, Woody Herman, Doc Severinsen, Warne Marsh and Bill Holman.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
