Fostina Dixon

For an astonishing number of decades, alto, soprano, and baritone saxophonist Fostina Dixon has performed and recorded with a star-studded roster of musicians, from Frank Foster, Roy Ayers, and Abbey Lincoln, to Melba Liston, Gil Evans, and Marvin Gaye; has been one of the most accomplished artists on her instrument; and has been a master teacher to generations of students. Yet for all of her accomplishments, Dixon has only recorded a few albums as a leader.
