Thurman Baker played with the trio around that time, but it doesn't look like him.

Oh and it was "Sam" not "Larry" Rivers on saxophone. :)

You're absolutely right Ken, it is Sam Rivers. At least I got it right on the photos.

I asked Dave Holland who the drummer is in the photo, and he wrote back, "The drummer is Bobby Battle, who is from Detroit. I really enjoyed playing with him in the trio with Sam.  He also played  with Don Pullen."

 

(By the way, Mr. Waxman, Thurman's last name is Barker, not Baker.)

In 1979, Sam mainly worked with Thurma the late Steve Ellington (who also was the first drummer in the DHollland 5tet (w/KWheeler, JPriester, SColeman as well as the drummer on the great Sam"fuckin' a-  don't call him Larry " Rivers - - 1967 recording Dimensions and Extensions)

Although I think that we can be SURE that it is NOT Roy Haynes
