Been looking for their two duo releases forever. I know one is in print on Paul Bley IAI label, but the other? Would be grateful if that could be shared.

Thanks Riccardo, that's a gem. There was a Sam Rivers LP released about that time titled "Flute!". Never seen the thing ever since. Never met anyone who remembers it. It would be great if someone could post a few words about it with the links. Inconstant Sol is THE reference for THIS type of music. And your blog has a magic name...

Sam'n'Dave! Thanks!--I've long been a fan of the IAI dates so this is an unlooked-for treasure.

I came to this thread about 6 years late, oh well.
By the way what does the "Masayuki Takayanagi EXPERIMENTAL PERFORMANCE with John Zorn" have to do with it and can either the rivers holland or the Takayanagi Zorn be re-upped?
