Rivers, Sam - Contours Contours
Jazz Used - LP BST 84206 Blue Note
Stunning New York Label (Both Sides) Non Deep Groove Stereo Housed In A Non Laminated Jacket. Features Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter And Joe Chambers. “On Contours, His Second Blue Note Album, Tenor Saxophonist Sam Rivers Fully Embraced The Avant-Garde, But Presented His Music In A Way That Wouldn't Be Upsetting Or Confusing To Hard Bop Loyalists. Rivers Leads A Quintet Featuring Trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, Pianist Herbie Hancock, Bassist Ron Carter, And Drummer Joe Chambers Through A Set Of Originals That Walk A Fine Line Between Probing, Contemplative Post-Bop And Densely Dissonant Avant-Jazz. Each Musician Is Able To Play The Extremes Equally Well While Remaining Sensitive To The Compositional Subtleties. Rarely Is Contours Anything Less Than Enthralling, And It Remains One Of The High Watermarks Of The Mid-'60s Avant-Garde Movement.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details

Rivers, Sam - Fuchsia Swing Song Fuchsia Swing Song
Jazz Used - LP BST 84184 Blue Note
1984 French Audiophile Pressing With Obi. Rivers, Tenor Sax; Jaki Byard, Piano; Ron Carter, Bass; Anthony Williams, Drums. Recorded In 1965. Appears Unplayed. One Of The Unsung Greats Of The 1960s Sam Rivers Has Remained A Vital Force Ever Since. At The Time That He Recorded Fuchsia Swing Song, He Was A Master At Playing Both Inside And Outside At The Same Time, Blurring The Lines Between Hard Bop And The Avant-Garde. Rivers, Who Early On Played Piano, Violin And Trombone Before Settling On The Tenor, Picked Up Experience Playing With Herb Pomeroy's Orchestra In The 1950s. In The Early 1960s He Gradually Became Involved With The Freer Forms Of Jazz, Performing With Archie Shepp, Bill Dixon, Paul Bley And Cecil Taylor. Rivers Spent A Month As A Member Of The Miles Davis Quintet In 1964 And Later That Year Recorded Fuchsia Swing Song, A Brilliant Debut. With Jaki Byard, Ron Carter And Tony Williams, Rivers Stretches Hard Bop And Blues To The Breaking Point. He Shows Tenderness As He Introduces His Most Famous Original, "Beatrice," And Tears Into Such Numbers As "Downstairs Blues Upstairs" And "Ellipsis." Throughout This Timeless Album, Sam Rivers Shows That He Was A True Giant, One Who Possessed A Very Individual Style And The Ability To Create Innovative Music With Every Note.... more details

Rivers, Sam - A New Conception A New Conception
Jazz Used - LP BST 84249 Blue Note
Blue & White Division Of Liberty Label Stereo. Jacket Has Slight Ring Wear And A Bottom Seam Split, Hence Price. The LP Is Near Mint. Sam Rivers, Tenor Sax, Soprano Sax, Flute; Hal Galper, Piano; Herbert Lewis, Bass; Steve Ellington, Drums. “The Title Of A New Conception Refers To Sam Rivers' Ingenious Interpretations Of Standards On This Record. Rivers Treats The Songs — Such Familiar Items As "When I Fall In Love," "I'll Never Smile Again," "That's All," "What A Difference A Day Makes," And "Secret Love" — With Respect, But He Doesn't Treat Them As Museum Pieces. He Knows That If The Songs Are To Remain Fresh, They Need To Be Heard In Different Ways, And He Skillfully Opens Up Each Composition To Contemporary Avant-Garde Techniques. Rivers And His Supporting Trio Of Pianist Hal Galper, Bassist Herbert Lewis, And Drummer Steve Ellington Gradually Ease Each Number Into More Adventurous Territory, Slowly Shifting Into Exploratory Instrumental Sections, Slyly Varying The Melodic Themes, Or Adding Shaded Dissonant Textures. It's Challenging Music That Remains Accessible, Since It Reconfigures Familiar Items In New, Intriguing Ways. The Sheer Skill In Rivers' Arrangements Once Again Confirms His Large, Unfortunately Underappreciated, Talent.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details

Factory Sealed, Limited Edition & Out-Of-Print 2011 45rpm 2LP 180gm HQ Stereo Reissue In Super Deluxe Gatefold Jacket. One Of The Unsung Greats Of The 1960s Sam Rivers Has Remained A Vital Force Ever Since.

Rivers, Sam - Hues Hues
Jazz Used - LP ASD 9302 ABC Impulse
1975 Gatefold Original. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “All Ten Selections On Hues Are Titled By A Particular Color. Four Of The Ten Trio Performances Are Studio And Six Are Live Performances. Rivers Is Accompanied By Drummer Norman Conners And Bassist Cecil McBee On "Amber"; Connors' Skin Work Is Noteworthy, And Rivers's Tenor Sax Cries And Whines Like A Hungry Newborn. Rivers Switches To Flute On "Turquoise," Where He's Pushed By Connors' Impressionistic Drum Rolls. The Piano Is Rivers's Instrument Of Choice On "Rose"; The Melody And Tempo Changes Enhance The Beauty Of The Superbly Executed, Intricate Arrangement. "Chartreuse" Is Mysterious, Strange, And Mid-Eastern-Ish, And Rivers Plays The Mind-Stretching Piece On Soprano Sax. "Mauve" And "Indigo" Were Both Recorded In Performance, And Rivers's Sidekicks Are Richard Davis (Bass) And Warren Smith (Drums & Percussion). The Former Is As Haunting As Anything Here; Rivers' Tenor Sax Seems To Be Exploring The Brain, While Davis Keeps A Low Profile, And Smith Does Percussion Tricks. Staying With Tenor On "Indigo," He Delivers His Most Straightforward Performance. The Final Four Cuts Were Also Recorded Live. Avld Anderson Playing Bass And Barry Altschul Handling Drums And Percussion Complement Rivers On Imaginative Selections Like "Onyx," With Its Mixed Styles And African Chants. It Segues Into "Topaz" Without Missing A Beat, And Rivers' Flute Work Is Full Of Vigor Then Mellows A Bit Before Energizing And Racing With Anderson And Altschul To End The Track. On "Ivory Black," Rivers Tickles The Ivories Like He's Playing A Soundtrack Cut For A Mystery; His Counterparts Provide A Sound Canvas For Rivers' Stringent Playing. "Violet" Sounds Like The Esoteric Sounds John Coltrane Became Acclaimed For. Hues Is Thoroughly Enjoyable And Should Be Reissued.” Andrew Hamilton, AMG.... more details
