Dixon, Bill - 17 Musicians in Search of a Sound: Darfur

SKU 25-AUM-CD-046
"Among all else of great note that shall happen in music this year, 2008 marks the magnificent return to record of the legendary Bill Dixon: composer, trumpeter, teacher and all-around musical force. His contributions to the body of great Black American Music first began in the 1960s: as a producer for Savoy Records; producing the groundbreaking October Revolution concert series in NYC 1964; as architect of the Jazz Composers Guild. In the late 60s he left ‘the scene’ but continued leaving an indelible mark on the music...While he has never stopped composing (prolifically at that), and produced a series of small ensemble recordings from the 70s – 90s, his work for expanded, orchestral ensemble has gone unrecorded and/or unreleased since his momentous album Intents And Purposes (RCA, 1967).... And now, this album -- a tour de force of orchestral composition, conduction and improvisational exploration -- fully composed by Bill Dixon and performed with The Bill Dixon Orchestra."
