The late trumpeter Bill Dixon's last concert, performing at the 2011 Victo Festival, performing with and directing an incredible group including brass players Taylor Ho Bynum, Rob Mazurek, Stephen Haynes, Graham Haynes; clarinetist Michel Cote; and cellist Glynis Loman. The music is remarkable and moody, presented in two major sections with a brief epilogue, using intensely layered and detailed harmonic language. The brass-heavy group adds power and force, where each section patiently builds to epic proportions, anchored by the muscular bass work of Ken Filiano and rock steady bursts from drummer Warren Smith.

Dixon's health was already failing at the time of this performance, and his solo was pre-recorded; his words at the epilogue are fragile yet profound, a fitting end to an incredible career. It would be hard to recommend a release more wholeheartedly...

Artist Biographies:

"Taylor Ho Bynum (b. 1975) has spent his career navigating the intersections between structure and improvisation - through musical composition, performance and interdisciplinary collaboration, and through production, organizing, teaching, writing and advocacy. As heard on over twenty recordings as a bandleader, Bynum's expressionistic playing on cornet and his expansive vision as composer have garnered him critical attention as one of the singular musical voices of his generation. He currently leads his Sextet and 7-tette, and works with many collective ensembles including a duo with drummer Tomas Fujiwara, the improv trio Book of Three, the UK/US collaborative Convergence Quartet, the dance/music interdisciplinary ensemble Masters of Ceremony, and the trans-idiomatic little big band Positive Catastrophe.

His varied endeavors include his Acoustic Bicycle Tours (where he travels to concerts solely by bike across thousands of miles) and his stewardship of Anthony Braxton's Tri-Centric Foundation (which he serves as executive director, producing most of Braxton's recent major projects). In addition to his own bands, his ongoing collaboration with Braxton, past work with other legendary figures such as Bill Dixon and Cecil Taylor, and current collective projects with forward thinking peers, Bynum increasingly travels the globe to conduct community-based large ensembles in explorations of new creative orchestra music. He is also a published author and contributor to The New Yorker's Culture Blog, has taught at universities, festivals, and workshops worldwide, and has served as a panelist and consultant for leading funders and organizations. His work has received support from Creative Capital, the Connecticut Office of the Arts, Chamber Music America, New Music USA, USArtists International, and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation."
