Sam Rivers & Joe Daley, NYC July, 1976

At Rivers’ Studio Rivbea, the most famous of the DIY jazz lofts of the late 70s, which developed in NYC when bars and nightclubs were becoming less and less accommodating to the experimentation of free jazz musicians, and allowed the music to grow in the underground .

Sam Rivers - Point of Many Returns (1965)

This cut absolutely simmers thanks to the impeccable musicianship on hand [Hubbard, Hancock, Carter, Chambers!], but it is Rivers’ angular writing—which maintains a deep driving pulse even as it wanders astray—and his transcendent soprano solo that steal the show.

Thank you, Sam Rivers.

John Coltrane Talks About Malcolm X and Music of the Times

Dave Liebman posted this audio interview with John Coltrane on Facbook. About the interview, he writes, “Maybe the best interview of Trane from 1966. Sounds like it was done at his home in Long Island by Frank Kofsky. His humility is astounding and some great thoughts concerning recordings. - Lieb” Thanks, Dave.

So rare to hear his voice.
