Album Review

Dixon, Bill Orchestra – “17 Musicians In Search of a Sound:Darfur” – [Aum Fidelity]

Cousin Mary   2/1/2009   CD, Jazz

Live recording from the 2007 Vision Festival XII. Each of the 17 fine musicians is heard distinctly in Dixon???s composition with improvisation. Sad, dark sounds that bring home the tragedy, horror, gloom and despair of Darfur.

Possibly easier to categorize as contemporary classical with few jazz characteristics of any kind ??? I have NEVER heard anything like this. Recommended!
