In a career which spans over 60 years, multi-instrumentali st Sam Rivers has been an extraordinary force in the world of jazz and creative music. Whether through intricate composition or stunning free improvisation, his music synthesizes a broad spectrum of styles into a unique and forward-looking sound. Equally important to history was his proprietorship of Studio Rivbea, a vibrant performance space in lower Manhattan which nurtured exciting new expressions of jazz in New York's musician-driven renaissance of the 1970s. As a
community-minded mentor and facile performer alike, Sam Rivers represents the highest level of artistic achievement and, remarkably, continues to innovate at the age of 83.
In a unique round-the-clock format, the festival will thoroughly explore Sam Rivers' fascinating musical world. The broadcast will center on a presentation of Rivers' complete recorded discography, supplemented by interviews with his fellow musicians and in-depth features on particular aspects of his music. Additionally, Sam Rivers will join us in studio to reflect on his career and share with listeners his living history.
