Sam Rivers was a talented Jazz musician who developed an interest in music at an early age, thanks in part to his family’s deep involvement in music. Sam’s father was a gospel musician, was a former member of the Fisk Jubilee Singers and had sung with the Silverstone Quartet. And as luck would have it, his mother, grandmother, and two sisters were also musicians. By his 30′s, Sam Rivers was capable of playing a wide variety of jazz instruments, including: soprano and tenor saxophones, clarinet, flute, harmonica, and piano.
