Dixon's work as a writer/piano player and vocalist has made him a significant contributor (many say founder) of the early R&B and jump blues genre. Since winning the W.C. Handy Award for Comeback Album of the Year in 1997 (for Wake Up And Live), he’s kept a low profile, concentrating on writing, giving an occasional live performance and spending time at home in Southern California with his family and friends. Fine! Fine! Thing reveals Dixon at his uncomplicated best. Songs like “My Wish”, “Love’s The Key” and the straightforward title don’t require in-depth analysis, just a willingness to reduce life’s complexities to simple, understandable equations. The songs on Fine!Fine!Thing reverberate with honesty, decency and traditional family values.
