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.
