You may remember Phillip Freeman as the writer who interviewed Bill Dixon for Wire magazine. Phil recently got a notion to create a new magazine, Burning Ambulance, available on demand as either a print product or down-loadable PDF. He asked me to write a piece on Tapestries for Small Orchestra for the first issue. I have expanded the original project journal from the Bill Dixon Recording Residency Project at Firehouse 12, adding new commentary and some voice from project participants.
I urge you to support this wonderful project by ordering a print copy. Tell your friends to do the same. Follow this link for excerpts from the inaugural issue and to order a copy. A tip of the hat to the LEF Foundation for supporting the recording and filming of Bill Dixon's work at Firehouse 12.
