Recorded in 1964 immediately after leaving the Miles Davis Quintet, Sam Rivers' Fuchsia Swing Song is one of the more auspicious debuts the label released in the mid-'60s. Rivers was a seasoned session player (his excellent work on Larry Young's Into Somethin' is a case in point), and a former member of Herb Pomeroy's Big Band before he went out with Davis. By the time of his debut, Rivershad been deep under the influence of Coltrane and Coleman, but wasn't willing to give up the blues.
Streams is a live album by American jazz saxophonist Sam Rivers featuring performances recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1973 for the Impulse! label. It's a shame there aren't more documents of this phase in Rivers' career, though that could be said of pretty much all of his phases
