ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fostina Dixon- “A true original."—Dr. Antoinette Handy, Author of “Black Women in American Bands”
“She is a player of impeccable control and skills with highly independent ideas.”—American Women in Jazz...
"She adeptly showcases her virtuosic flair juxtaposing melody and improvisation...” - All About Jazz

Fostina Dixon’s soulful, jazzy, funky, gospel sound is as unique as it is mesmerizing. One of the few female jazz instrumentalists to front her own band, Winds of Change, the saxophonist, composer, vocalist and educator’s comeback album in 2016, “Here We Go Again” has garnered complimentary reviews.

This new single to be released in 2019, " Vertical Alignment." written by Fostina's husband Todd Kilgoe, is more soul stirring and passionate. This ballad is seductive and shows Fostina's unique improvisational style.

After a storied early career that included playing alongside such Jazz greats as Abbey Lincoln, Melba Liston, Frank Foster, James “Blood” Ulmer, Tom Browne, Roy Ayers, playing in the Gerald Wilson Big Band, touring with Marvin Gaye and many other experiences too vast to mention, Fostina has made significant contributions to the arts and education scenes.

Fostina has received a Christi Award for her contributions to promoting the arts in the community, an Outstanding Arts Educator award from the Delaware Board of Education, and an Outstanding Contributor award from the Council of Jazz Advocates for her work as an arts educator and the Founder and longtime Executive Director of the Wilmington Youth Jazz Band.

A full CD is expected to be released after the release of Vertical Alignment" in 2019.
