I saw Sam Rivers play last night (Wed, 14th) at Vision Festival XI (http://www.visionfestival.org/)
I saw him once before play with this trio at the ICA in Boston a number of years ago. This time the first set was his big-band which I’ve only heard on CDs. In person you really can feel the power of this band.

What happens in the background is that the file is stored temporarily in an Anywhere Account. Your recipient receives a link in a small email message. If they wish to retrieve the file they need only click on the link.Continue reading →
