We had hoped that this would be a celebratory post. Given the passing of Sam Rivers on December 26th, it is necessarily mournful. What started as a jolly contest concludes as a teary memorial. As we work on what we hope will be a fitting tribute to Rivers, and work on coming to grips with this sad news, we nevertheless proceed with the final stages of the giveaway.
The Fates have spoken, and the winning number in the Rivers/Mosaic drawing is 94, which means the Mosaic Select will soon be winging it’s way to Diana Arvanites (once we learn her address). Congratulations, Diana! And many thanks to all who entered. We hope you’ll try again whenever we give this another go.
Please enjoy a couple of tracks from Rivers’ solo FMP album, Portrait, above. We send our best wishes and condolences to the extended Rivers family, and to all who were touched by his music.
