Harlem Jazz Series - Fostina Dixon and Winds of Change in New York on Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 1200 - 1400
Fostina Dixon's soulful, jazzy, funky, gospel sound is as unique as it is mesmerizing. One of the few female jazz instrumentalists to front her own band, Winds of Change, the saxophonist, composer, vocalist and educator's 2017 comeback album, "Here We Go Again" has garnered complimentary reviews, and is "a thoroughly engaging journey that seamlessly transports the listener with spiritual-like soundscapes. On the title track, she adeptly showcases her virtuosic flair juxtaposing melody and improvisation." After a storied early career that included playing alongside such jazz greats as Abbey Lincoln, Melba Liston, Frank Foster, James "Blood" Ulmer, and touring with Marvin Gaye, Fostina was compelled to move back to her hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, where she made significant contributions to the arts and education scenes. Fostina has received a Christi Award for her contributions to promoting the arts in the community, an Outstanding Arts Educator Award from the Delaware Board of Education, and an Outstanding Contributor award from the Council of Jazz Advocates for her work as an arts educator and the Founder and longtime Executive Director of the Wilmington Youth Jazz Band.
