Bill Dixon In Italy

"...a studio recording despite what the titles might imply. Remarkably these were only Dixon's third sessions as a leader in nearly twenty years."    (source: The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD)

"A rare date from a distinctive trumpeter whose approach, clarity of tone, and directness set him apart in the '60s. The set included a fine three-part song dedicated to Cecil Taylor. The band mixed avant-garde types like bassist Alan Silva with mainstream figures like drummer Freddie Waits. It also had an unusual lineup, with two, sometimes three trumpeters and a saxophonist, bassist, and drummer. Dixon occasionally played piano."   (source: AllMusic.com, R. Wynn)
