(Published: May 11, 2007)

WKCR 89.9 FM NY presents the SAM RIVERS FESTIVAL

5/18/2007 12:00 PM through 5/25/2007 9:00 PM
&
SAM RIVERS IN CONCERT
with Dave Holland (bass) & Barry Altschul (drums)

5/25/07 8:00 PM, Miller Theatre (2960 Broadway @ 116th St.)

WKCR is proud to announce a week-long festival broadcast honoring the musical genius of Sam Rivers, airing continuously for 177 hours from 12:00 PM Friday May 18th until 9:00 PM Friday May 25th.

The festival will culminate with a live concert by Rivers himself at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre, Friday May 25th at 8:00 PM. The concert reunites the historic trio of Sam Rivers, Dave Holland, and Barry Altschul in a special one-time performance. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the concert. For ticketing information, call 1-800-838-3006 or visit www.wkcr.org.

In a career which spans over 60 years, multi-instrumentalist Sam Rivers has been an extraordinary force in the world of jazz and creative music. Whether through intricate composition or stunning free improvisation, his music synthesizes a broad spectrum of styles into a unique and forward-looking sound. Equally important to history was his proprietorship of Studio Rivbea, a vibrant performance space in lower Manhattan which nurtured exciting new expressions of jazz in New York's musician-driven renaissance of the 1970s. As a community-minded mentor and facile performer alike, Sam Rivers represents the highest level of artistic achievement and, remarkably, continues to innovate at the age of 83.

In a unique around-the-clock format, the festival will thoroughly explore Sam Rivers’ fascinating musical world. The broadcast will center on a presentation of Rivers’ complete recorded discography, supplemented by interviews with his fellow musicians and in-depth features on particular aspects of his music. Additionally, Sam Rivers will join us in studio to reflect on his career and share with listeners his living history.

WKCR-FM is a non-commercial, student-run radio station affiliated with Columbia University. Broadcasting to the New York City region at 89.9 FM and over the internet at wkcr.org, the station provides over 60 hours of weekly jazz programming and offers special programming heard no where else on radio.
