About

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Jordon Dixon grew up in a very musical family. He started his musical path at the age of 12. By the age of 15 he was sitting in at local bars and clubs, while continuously honing his raw talent. In the summer of 2002 at the age of 19, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps as a Marine Musician. After 11 years of honorable service to the United States, he moved to the Washington D.C. area to play and study music with some of the best musicians and instructors in the world, and here is where he currently resides.  In April of 2016, Jordon released his debut album, “A Conversation Among Friends” and was honored by the Washington City Paper as the “Best Tenor Saxophonist of 2016”. Just one month after his album release, Jordon earned a Bachelor of Music  Degree in Jazz Studies from the University of the District of Columbia.  Jordon Dixon continues to stay hungry, humble and disciplined in his musical quest.

 

“Jordon Dixon brings a level of soul to his music that is rarely seen in a player his age. You can hear it in his sound and feel it as a listener.” 

Jordy Freed of DL Media Music

 

“Dixon’s tenor saxophone has a low, dark-hued tone- like the sound of stout- but has a pungent center that’s revealed gradually in his solos, as he breaks down the structure of the song he’s improvising on.” 

 

Michael J. West, Jazz Critic of the Washington City Paper
