  • The legendary figurehead behind 1964's October Revolution in Jazz, trumpeter Bill Dixon, has a recorded output that has remained sporadic but greatly influential. Equally boundary pushing in his approach to brass, cornetist Rob Mazurek has lassoed the elder Dixon for a rare recording opportunity with his post-rock-cum-avant-jazz conglomeration, Exploding Star Orchestra. On their eponymously titled debut, this fluid, swinging ensemble, along with their intrepid co-leaders, trade explosive fanfare and delay-soaked abstractions that resemble a cross-generational free-jazz cage match.
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.45) - "The resulting music has far more depth, mystery and texture than Exploding Star orchestra's debut, and stands out as one of the best things Mazurek has done."

Down Beat (p.59) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "With a personal vocabulary built of flinty, sputtering fricatives and a bottom end that dives way off the natural range of his horn, Dixon is at his best in a ripe, supportive context like this..."

JazzTimes (p.78) - "'Entrances/One' revels in waves of textures, with instruments rising and falling over a tempo helmed by two basses, drums and tympani."
