Saxophonist/ flautist Sam Rivers died yesterday, in Florida where he lived,
at the age of 88. Peter Hum of the Ottawa Citizen has assembled a collec,ion of Youtube clips. I just can’t get Beatrice out of my head this morning, and I don’t think I ever will. RIP.
RIP Sam Rivers
What a giant, still composing/playing
until the end, I thought he would go on til 100 !
Saw the Rivbea Orchestra 7 years ago at LJF, playing “Aurora” now. Sad news
