Bill Dixon – Papyrus, Volume 1

Papyrus, Volume 1

Bill Dixon With Tony OxleyPapyrus, Volume 1 Soul Note 121308-2 (1999)

Dixon employs a very conversational style here.  He plays at a pace that lets things unfold very slowly, as if there is no rush to get anywhere in particular.  Tony Oxley provides a more inquisitive reaction to Dixon’s statements, as if always asking, “Tell me more.”  Count this among Dixon’s better late-career albums.
