  • More Jazz Photoblogging: Sam Rivers Trio, Boston, 1976

    I digitized a lot of photos over the past year, but I haven’t gotten around to putting them online. Here are some pictures from a wonderful performance by Sam Rivers’ Trio at the Jazz Workshop. Most of these were woefully underexposed; some parts of the images were restored digitally.

    While I don’t feel these are my best work they nonetheless capture some of the ambience of the gig that night. Not bad for a high-school student.

    Sam Rivers is a truly amazing musician who is still going strong. Here is his website.

    The Jazz Workshop, downtown Boston. Fred Taylor ran both the Workshop and Paul’s Mall, next door. He might be able to help you find out more.

    Any idea of the venue? (any clues help) 😉
    Even the “before 1976” narrows it for me.

    Hi Rick – I don’t see how it could have been much later than 1976 as I stopped taking pictures once I no longer had access to my high school darkroom. But maybe it was earlier…’75? It was a long time ago.

    Wish I could tell you more!


    Any chance you have actual dates for this? Sure it was ’76? I don’t have Boston Workshop dates for that year… http://www.bb10k.com/RIVERS.disc.html

    Any details appreciated!
