For this new installment of our "From the Archive" series, we present an excerpt from the concert by the Sam Rivers Quartet hosted by Centro d'Arte in 1978 in Padua, Italy. The quartet featured some of the finest musicians operating in the creative scene of the '70s, with Sam Rivers on saxophone, Dave Holland on double bass, Joe Daley on tuba and Thurman Barker on drums. The track is a prime example of this band's ability to shift from groove to abstraction with ease, defying all expectations while pushing the music to new heights of creative expression.
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.
