New Music Now: Sam Rivers Trio and Sam Rivers with the NEC Jazz Orchestra

The legendary multi-instrumentalist Sam Rivers returns to Boston to perform with his trio and realize his orchestral compositions with a stellar big band of New England Conservatory alumni and students. Eighty-three years young, Sam was an integral part of Boston’s creative music scene in the 1960s, before moving to New York and working with giants like Miles Davis and Charlie Mingus. This trio features the leader on tenor and soprano saxophones, flute, and piano. His partners include multi-instumentalists Doug Mathews (bass, bass clarinet and bass guitar) and Rion Smith (drums).

Tickets: $20-25 reserved seating; $10 if I put you on the guest list.
