Sam Rivers Festival at WKCR

Columbia University’s WKCR FM is offering a Sam Rivers radio festival.

Sam Rivers Festival Broadcast

89.9 FM in New York
Streaming live online at http://www.wkcr.org
Starting Friday, May 18, 2007 at 12 noon
Ending Friday, May 25, 2007 at 9 p.m.

WKCR is proud to announce a week-long festival broadcast honoring the musical genius of Sam Rivers, set to air continuously for 177 hours during May 18-25, 2007.

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

In a tradition spanning over 35 years, WKCR’s jazz department again presents a signature radio event: a multi-day salute to an under-recognized legend of the art form. In May of 2007, tune in to WKCR for Sam Rivers Radio.

The festival schedule will be available soon.
