Bill Dixon
Vade Mecum
Free Jazz
Soul Note 1994

The first of two volumes released from this session, Vade Mecum features
this remarkably nimble and creative quartet under the direction of Bill
Dixon. Not quite free improvisation, Dixon's compositions provide loose
frameworks for the musicians, creating subtle structural spaces for the
to investigate. In this sense, his work is akin to (and perhaps an
updating of) Cecil Taylor's classic Conquistador!, on which Dixon
participated. The expansiveness and airiness of the sound here is one of
this record's most striking qualities. The two bassists, Guy and
Parker, have very different but complimentary personae; the former fleet
and inquisitive, the latter dark and probing. With the two of them
occupying the middle ground, underpinned by Oxley's uniquely coloristic
percussion, Dixon's flights have all the naturalness and
unpredictability of a bird's. Vade Mecum II, released separately,
arguably attains even greater heights than this recording, but both are
vital documents representing the state of improvised music in the '90s.
