Samuel Carthorne Rivers
As Daniele Ionio has said, the sounds are "elegant, occasionally mellow, but also capable of wounded rage. They do not hark back to years gone by (as happens unfortunately with other jazz players today), they don't celebrate, they ARE. Perhaps they also anticipate what is about to be born, at the same time saying, through their truthfulness, that everything is still to be decided. This is indeed the hope, the Black Hope, of Sam Rivers.
