After spending the early ‘60s playing in groups with Cecil
Taylor and Archie Shepp, trumpeter Bill Dixon recorded
his singular and visionary masterpiece in 1967. Intents And
Purposes remains not only Dixon’s defining statement as a
composer, but also one of the most luminous moments in
the history of avant-garde jazz.
Combining orchestral timbres with free jazz intensity,
Dixon leads a ten-piece ensemble including such heavyweights
as Byard Lancaster, Robin Kenyatta, Jimmy
Garrison and Reggie Workman. Closing each side of the
album, “Nightfall Pieces I” and “Nightfall Pieces II” are
evocative duets featuring Dixon’s flugelhorn accompanied
by flautist George Marge.
With Intents And Purposes, Dixon creates a work focused
as much on sculpting and defining space—
emphasizing
moments of resonant stillness around which the compositions
thrum and swell—as on purity of expression.
This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans
of Art Ensemble of Chicago, Anthony Braxton and Henry
Cow.
“One of the richest and most compelling LPs to taunt and
tempt listeners into a life of freakdom.”
—John Corbett
