Sam Rivers - Sizzle (1975)


Previously:

Sam Rivers - Contours (1965)
Sam Rivers - Crystals (1974)

Recorded the year after his avant-free jazz masterpiece, Crystals, the rhythmic, at times funky Sizzle was a considerable deviation for Rivers. Although plenty of free-form solos and avant-garde tendencies remain intact, and it's way less 'mainstream' than many fans would have you think, it's still somewhat of an outlier in his discography.

Track listing:
1. Dawn
2. Flare
3. Flame
4. Scud

Effusive melange

  1. Anyone else getting "May contain a virus" blockings when trying to grab this?

    1. It's not doing that for me. I can assure you, it's only mp3s in there, maybe the album cover. Weird.
