Read "The Tuba Trio Chronicles" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Composer and tubaist Joseph Daley pays tribute to the great saxophonist/flutist Sam Rivers with his stimulating and provocative The Tuba Trio Chronicles. Daley and percussionist Warren Smith, who appears on the current album, were member of Rivers' tuba trio in the 1970s.

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.
