Following the Sound of Bill Dixon

  Searching For a Sound: Remembering Bill Dixon
Follow the Sound Festival
Antwerp, Belgium

Next week, eight days after Bill Dixon's eighty-fifth birthday, I will fly to Antwerp and join Franz Koglmann, Jacques Coursil and Barry Guy to create new music in Bill's memory.  Each musician in this grouping worked with Dixon at some point over the past forty five years.  Rob Leurentop, Artistic Director of the Follow the Sound Festival, was inspired to knit the four of us together.  I am happy that he had the notion.
