"Saxophonist & flutist Sam Rivers followed-up his striking debut Fuchsia Swing Song with the tremendous album Contours, which was recorded at Rudy Van Gelder’s Englewood Cliffs, NJ studio in 1965 with a top flight band featuring Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums. The quintet explored four of Rivers’ engaging original compositions—“Point of Many Returns” “Dance of the Tripedal” “Euterpe” & “Mellifluous Cacophony”—with a profound spirit of freedom and innovation while keeping a foot firmly planted in Post-Bop.
