    James Rivers is a New Orleans musical treasure. He plays a mixture of Rock, progressive Jazz, Rhythm and Blues and Gospel.  One of only three Jazz musicians ever known to play the bagpipes, James Rivers would probably call himself a saxophonist, but his forte is really an amazing musical dexterity that has helped him master a dozen other instruments.
