The Vision Festival: On the Fringe and Reveling in Rhythm - New York Times: "Fittingly, this year's edition bears a dedication to Mr. Rivers.

At 82, he is irrefutably an elder statesman, but he wears that distinction lightly. In an evening bracketed by two of his working bands, he conveyed a sense of mischievous, ageless wonder."
