The Sam Rivers Trio’s Reunion: Live in New York

Great news! I was just talking about this concert last week, wondering what was happening with the recording…strange, I didn’t know it was coming out. Maybe there’s more on the way, Impulse reissues, for example.

Pi Recordings wrote on Facebook:

Peter Hum lists The Sam Rivers Trio’s Reunion: Live in New York. We have been working on this release for about two years now and are happy this day is almost here. Out September 25th, what would have been Sam’s birthday.

Peter Hum writes in the Ottawa Citizen:

Sam Rivers / Dave Holland / Barry Altschul — Reunion: Live in New York (Pi Recordings)

Let’s leave aside any cynical musings about why the music on this music remained unreleased until after last December’s passing of Sam Rivers, and just try to be patient until this release, which documents a 2007 reunion concert featuring Rivers, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Barry Altschul drops on Sept. 25.

At a Columbia University concert, the three free-form masters picked up where they left off after a 25-year hiatus. In his review of the show for the New York Times, Nate Chinen wrote that the concert “confirmed the expressive power of collective improvisation.” I look forward to hearing the particulars.
