On!

by Jordon Dixon

On! demonstrates that Jordon Dixon is not only a superb saxophonist. In Allyn Johnson, Herman Burney, C.V. Dashiell and J.S. Williams, he knows how to assemble some of the best musicians to work with him. And he writes some great tunes. Enjoy the music! Rusty Hassan of WPFW-FM

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Like he did on A Conversation Among Friends, Jordon again demonstrates that he is a versatile musician, matching his facility as a tenor saxophonist with his ability as a composer. On! Features all original compositions. The album opens with Notes From The Nook, a funky, laid back blues that has Allyn doubling on piano and organ. The Nook is that room at home where Jordon likes to lay back and chill. Way Too Serious is a bright, jaunty tune that says “lighten up.”
What You’ve Done For Me is a ballad with a beautiful conversation between Jordon and Allyn leading into Allyn’s solo before Jordon comes back to continue and conclude the dialogue. We Kin is about keeping it in the family.
On! starts off slowly, beautifully, then with an exclamation shifts to some hard swinging with Herman getting a tasty solo and C.V. driving the ensemble rhythmically. Flame and Friction is a slow blues that feature J.S. Williams on trumpet with funky solos by Jordon and Allyn.
Lee Lee Dee is an up tempo tune that Jordon wrote for his wife Lelan, as I would suppose, the ballad She Meant It When She Said It featuring a beautiful solo by Herman on bass. Fake Flowers takes Jordon back home to Louisiana with its jaunty New Orleans rhythm featuring J.S. Williams on trumpet, Jordon and Allyn getting their say with C.V. laying out that old time religion throughout. There is a reprise of Notes From The Nook, a funky alternate take, to conclude the album.
On! demonstrates that Jordon Dixon is not only a superb saxophonist. In Allyn Johnson, Herman Burney, C.V. Dashiell and J.S. Williams, he knows how to assemble some of the best musicians to work with him. And he writes some great tunes. Enjoy the music!
