Sam Rivers - R.I.P.

 Well I was hoping to not make a post until after the new year but sadly we have to say goodbye to Sam Rivers.

He played on some of my favorite records like Andrew Hill's Changes, Dave Holland's Conference of the Birds, and Bobby Hutcherson's Dialogue. He recorded that great lp with Don Pullen Capricorn Rising.

This was his first date as a leader. Dig around, there are a couple of Rivers' post on the blog.
