Sam Rivers Contrasts Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Contrasts has been unavailable for many years and is now reissued on 180g vinyl together with its first ever release on CD. By the time of its recording in 1979, Sam Rivers and Dave Holland had been working together consistently for seven years (with Daveís legendary Conference of the Birds at the start of their collaboration), a powerhouse combination of multi-reeds and double bass.

Of the drummers who passed through the line-up, Thurman Barker was one of the most creative, rippling across drum kit and marimba. Young trombone innovator George Lewis had already worked with Holland and Barker in Anthony Braxton groups. For Contrasts everyone was fired up and ready to play.

Dave Holland always described Sam Riversís groups as his finishing school. It was Sam - renowned as one of the major teachers in American jazz - who instructed him to play ďall the musicĒ - inside, outside, atonal, swing, blues, and all the hues of the jazz and chamber music traditions.
