I was wondering what model SML Sam Rivers plays and what kind of setup he uses?Does anyone know him? I would love to know.He has a really hard sounding tenor and also beautifull like his ballad,Beatrice.Does anyone know if he teaches?Thanks.

Well, you learn something new every day: I didn't know Rivers played an SML, I thought he was still with the Mk6. I read an article on him a few months ago, where he spoke about moving to Florida and really enjoying working out there. I cannot remember if the article was on DownBeat or Sax Journ., I'll try dig it out if you're interested.

I heard Sam sold his SML and after pinging thru a few different hands it ended up with [name omitted] who let me try it. It was a horn to die for.

I only knew it was a SML when I saw the cover of his fist album on blue note,fuchsia swing song,his tone is hard and happening.It must have been a great thrill to blow that tenor.Did he replace it with something else?

Someone was offering an SML tenor that was previously owned by Sam Rivers on the web about 2 years ago. I believe the seller was in NYC and occaisionally visited these web pages (and the price might have been under $1400).
