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

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.

Bill Dixon

Indeed another innovator gone. It would be worth watching him again that excellent film, Imagine the Sound.
