An explosive late '70s set with underrated composer, multi-instrumentalist, and arranger Sam Rivers leading a strong quartet. While bassist and cellist Dave Holland and percussionist Thurman Barker merged to form a strong, challenging rhythm section, Rivers and Joe Daley, playing tuba and baritone horn, worked together to create instrumental dialogues in sequence. Their array of contrasting voicings, with Rivers on tenor and soprano sax and flute, makes for compelling listening.
if you love Sam than this is your record, in fact they all are.
I have seen sam play two times in orlando at the social and both times he kept me with him similar to the way bela fleck holds you through mesmerizing.Sams energy and passion for what he does shows "SAM RIVERS"
