Subject: Bill Dixon has died


I've just been asked by his estate to deliver the sad news that
trumpeter/composer/educator Bill Dixon died last night in his sleep at
his longtime home in North Bennington, Vermont after a two-year
illness.

He was 84 years old.

Dixon is survived by his longtime partner Sharon Vogel and two children.

Information about a memorial service and where to send donations in
his name is forthcoming.

An official obituary is in the works and will be available shortly.
