Russ Escritt’s choice for his pic of the week is one from the archive: Sam Rivers, from his gig with his Rivbea Orchestra at the CBSO Centre in Birmingham in November 2004. Russ was inspired to look for it after hearing a new Select release by Mosaic Records, three CDs of the Rivbea Orchestra. “They are all previously unreleased and all new stuff. I’m really enjoying it, it’s a fabulous big band,” he writes. Just click on the picture to find Russ’s website with loads of his other pictures plus his blog. Russ has another book of his photographs available to buy. It’s called A Jazz Year In Birmingham and covers September 2009 to August 2010.
