ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dixon was inspired to return to playing piano solo music in 1987 while in college after attending a George Winston concert in Washington, D.C. Dixon had grown up with piano lessons but had not played for several years. He returned to the piano in college and began composing music. After composing enough material to produce his first album in 1992, he released his follow up album in 1994. Dixon set out to record his own unique piano style which illustrate life experiences such as leaving home and graduating from college. Doll's compositions range from quiet and slower moving pieces to songs that combine popular music and jazz. Dixon privately recorded his first piano solo album in 1992, titled IN THE DARK after meeting George Winston's producer. Howard Johnston co-produced both IN THE DARK and Doll's second release, INDEPENDENCE WAY.

Dixon released his 3rd album TEN YEARS in the Fall of 2004. The album was recorded in San Francisco and is dedicated to the memory of a close friend who passed away from cancer.

Dixon's additional piano influences include Bruce Hornsby, Elton John, Billy Joel, Liz Story, Phil Aaberg and David Lanz.

Dixon grew up listening to Rock and Roll and first heard the piano solo music played by George Winston on the radio in the Detroit Area. Their was a station there 100.3 that did a show every evening that had the theme of relaxation and introspection.

Dixon's music has appeared on a television show and several hundred radio stations across the country. He has played at a number of live events over the years including at the Andre Agassi charity event in 1996 in Las Vegas. His records are available at Amazon.com; CDBABY, Tower.com, Ratesummusic.com and at his own web site dixondolljr.com.

Stunning !
Dixon crafts compositions that range from simple to complex capturing special moments and singular people in his life. Doll's arrangements diverge from playful to dramatic. He seamlessly blends a variety of styles from contemporary to jazz in his music. Ten Years is Dixon's third release and includes liner notes explaining the inspirations and stories behind each composition. 'Sleigh Ride' is the opening track that captures the magic of a sleigh ride with friends in Colorado. The piano conveys the joy of the moment. 'Ten Years' is a more serious song as it is a tribute to a dear friend who passed away. The mood is subdued yet stirring. It is followed by the feisty 'Cool' with its catchy key changes. The CD closes on 'Musical Nights' – a light-hearted tune that flows on smooth yet stunning piano chords. Dixon creates much excitement and expression in his music and Ten Years captures that sprit from the first note to the very last!
