Riviera Summit captures a live performance by Thad Jones, Cat Anderson, and Claude Bolling as a trio -- the former two on trumpet, the latter on piano. The performance originally took place at the Midem Jazz Gala in Cannes, France, in January 1979. The trio performs a total of 11 songs, some originals, some not. If you enjoy the music of the featured musicians or other Thad Jones Band performances, there's a good chance you'll enjoy this performance, even if there's nothing particularly special or novel about it.
