Source: Orlando Weekly. It still seems somewhat like a dream that free-jazz deity Sam Rivers spent the last two decades (1991-2011) of his life here in Orlando, musical powers and performance chops intact, a regular presence on local stages with a variety of ensembles including his Rivbea Orchestra. If you need some concrete proof, or just want to hear the great man again, an audio time capsule from that period has just been unearthed, in the form of a live session Rivers played back in 1994 for Rollins College’s student radio station WPRK.
