Sam Rivers - Contours (1965)

This is the second album, on the Blue Note label, by avant-garde/jazz saxaphonist Sam Rivers. It fits around the halfway point between dense structure and free jazz, and the album is supposedly a crucial album in the bop category, although I don't really listen to bop jazz. The solos on "Dance of the Tripedal" just can't be topped.

ps. Mr. herbie hancock on keys
