Label: Past Due Records | Release Year: 2016

For the past four decades, a growing cult of soul music collectors have sought two obscure LPs and a handful of extremely rare 45s released on the vanity record label LAD Productions, Inc. between the late seventies and the mid eighties by the mysterious South Side Chicago singer/song writer Larry Dixon. Larry’s raw songs capture the transition from R&B to boogie-down as disco was rapidly becoming extinct. They also perfectly illustrate Larry’s ability to overcome his environment and discrimination, transcended by his determination to write and produce music. With the support of his faithful musicians, Larry’s success was only hindered by lack of airplay and promotion, but his talent shines through.

As the main songwriter for Chicago's Chess label, bassist/singer Willie Dixon was one of the most influential and prolific figures in blues. Although he often served as a session player for other well-known musicians, his soulful presence was always felt, as revealed on this excellent 25-track collection which features Dixon performing with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Witherspoon, Buddy Guy, Little Walter, Elmore James, Otis Rush, and Etta James.

Released shortly after jump blues legend Floyd Dixon's death at the age of 77, Time Brings About a Change features an all-star performance recorded near the end of the singer and pianist's life. Dixon was already in poor health by the time of this recording, and so he wisely minimizes his singing. (Longtime fans of this fluid and dynamic singer will find some of the broken and missed notes on songs like "Sweet Home Chicago" as sad as Johnny Cash's equally frail performances on his last records.) However, Dixon's piano playing is surprisingly strong throughout, so much so that the band, featuring guitarist Kid Ramos and the Fabulous Thunderbirds' Kim Wilson on harmonica, never overshadows the star.

Dixon was the Rick Reuben of Chicago, the Quincy Jones of Chess, the George Martin of the post-war blues era and a damn fine musician to boot. His compositions are indescribably important to the history of modern music including 'Little Red Rooster', 'Hoochie Coochie Man', 'Spoonful', 'My Babe', the list goes on! Here we find him behind the mic and on the bass with fellow blues pianist legend Memphis Slim on his debut album 'Willie's Blues'.

Although this CD by pianist Memphis Slim and bassist Willie Dixon is marketed as a part of Verve's Jazz in Paris reissue series, it is, of course, a blues date, with a fair amount of boogie-woogie. The two veterans, who had worked together previously, are joined by drummer Phillipe Combelle during the two 1962 sessions recorded at Les Trois Mailletz, complete with a typically out of tune piano and a fair amount of noise from the audience at times.

Simple elegance…..Jazz cello? Normally saved for various incarnations of jazz orchestra but string diva Akua Dixon strips down the ensemble size and creates a Duke Ellington inspired work that includes some exciting cameos and some standards that are reinvented for a somewhat more contemporary feel of some old friends. The arrangements elevate the release along with some cameo appearances thanks to Regina Carter, Kenny Davis and violin virtuoso John Blake Jr. Make your calendar for the street date of Jan. 13th, 2015!

Chess/MCA MCD 16500 | 32bit remaster 1997 | 605Mb

This was the most unusual, and probably the most difficult to assemble of MCA's Chess Box series, mostly because of the unusual nature of Willie Dixon's contribution to Chess Records. To be sure, Dixon rates a place in the history of the label right alongside that of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter, but his role was more subtle than that of a performer (indeed, two of the half-dozen recordings here that feature Dixon as a singer were previously unreleased). So he is all over this two-CD set, as a songwriter, producer, and bassist, and occasionally as a singer as well, but the unifying element are the Dixon songs, and he is the only blues songwriter to be honored by a major label with a retrospective of this type.
