The Gabe Dixon Band has been around since 1999, in one form or another. Dixon (Piano, Vocals), Jano Rix (Drums), and Winston Harrison (Bass, Mandator?) got started as roommates at the University of Miami. Over time, Dixon, with his background as a classically trained pianist, built an impressive resume, playing with the likes of Alison Krauss, O.A.R., and, perhaps most impressively, Paul McCartney. After getting their start focusing on jazz and improvisation, in 2006, the trio shifted their sights to more structured song writing. The result of this change in approach is their self titled album, set to be released on August 26th.
