Trumpeter-composer Bill Dixon
(b. October 5, 1925) might, over the past year or so, be getting much-deserved notoriety in the music press for his orchestral suites (Seventeen Musicians in Search of a Sound
; Tapestries for Small Orchestra
) and collaboration with Rob Mazurek
and the Exploding Star Orchestra. However, his visual art--while adorning the covers of numerous albums in his discography--still is often not seen in its own light. AAJ is pleased to offer several of Dixon's paintings, lithographs and drawings, part of its new and improved Photo Gallery
