The music of Sam Rivers

Of the music legends who’ve called Orlando home, few are as brilliant and important as jazz master Sam Rivers. Once a frequent scene presence with exciting public performances of varying scale and formality, his spirit was reduced to a revered memory with his 2011 passing. However, after the enthusiastic reception of a couple of performances last fall, the New Sam Rivers Rivbea Orchestra, mostly comprising musicians who played in Rivers’ big band for years, now honors the man on stage monthly at Will’s Pub.
