We begin this show with a tribute to the great Sam Rivers who passed away this week at the age of 88. Sam Rivers was one of the finest free jazz players and composers. First we hear his work on Dave Holland's great Conference of the Birds CD, and then we continue with some of River's work as a band leader. After the Sam Rives tribute, I begin the first part of our Best Of 2011 Jazz CD releases. This week we hear from Jen Allen, Ralph Peterson, Mike DiRubbo and Geoff Vidal. Stay tuned for next weeks show when we play more best of 2011.

You can check out In The Groove's best jazz releases from 2011 from this link.
