Introducing…….

The Blues Experience with Cash McCall, and their debut CD

“The Vintage Room”

Alex Dixon was born in 1975 in Chicago's South Side. He was taught at a very early age how to play the blues by legendary bluesman, Willie Dixon, who also happened to be his grandfather and who raised him. He learned to play the piano with teachings from Leonard “Baby Doo” Caston, Lafayette Leake and his uncle Arthur “Butch” Dixon, all which had played in bands with Willie Dixon. The spirit of Little Brother Montgomery also came into play as he was a huge influence on Willie Dixon. Alex played in shows across the country with his grandfather, including The Chicago Blues Festival. He co-wrote songs on the Grammy award winning album "Hidden Charms", which was the last album recorded by Willie Dixon. Alex was raised among the “Who’s who” of Blues, including Bo Diddley, B.B. King, Chuck Berry and Koko Taylor. He was featured in Willie Dixon's autobiography "I Am the Blues" and in his songbook.

Alex took some time off during his late teens and early twenties to attend college and to decide just what he wanted to do in life.....which brought him back to The Blues. He formed Dixon Landing Music, along with his wife Melissa, in 2007. His focus is to reach out to the little known or undiscovered musician/artist and to bring back the Chicago Blues feel that his grandfather helped create. Now, he is currently writing, producing and performing some of his songs as well as a few previously unreleased Willie Dixon songs, which the world has been anxiously awaiting for. He has co-written over 40 songs with his grandfather, some of which will be released in upcoming projects. He recently wrapped up a recording session with a very talented blues guitarist/singer Cash McCall, a blues musician who had also performed and recorded with Willie Dixon. Accompanying them in the studio was Steve Bell, a phenomenal harmonica player who is the son of the late Carey Bell Harrington. The Blues Experience, their band, also includes guitarist Bill “Young Blood” Learned, guitarist Katy J, bassist Brady Wills and drummer Vinnie Threats. All songs were recorded and mixed by Aaron Mason at Bell Sound Studios in Hollywood, CA.

Alex, at the age of 32, is currently the only musician in the Dixon family to have written, produced, arranged and recorded a CD since his grandfather, who was a producer, arranger, and writer for some of the most famous blues songs ever. Some of those songs include Hoochie Coochie Man, Back Door Man, Spoonful and I Just Want To Make Love To You, to name a few.

Alex is doing his part to continue the legacy of the Dixon family and to ensure that the world will know about the history of the blues.

The Album
For those who miss great Willie Dixon - Cash is here !!!
The disk worth every peny and more. Just keep on.

Alex has inherited the song writing skills of Willie and his compostions on this cd are all excellent. This is a cd of tough 50s style Chicago blues and fans of that style will not be disappointed by it. Cash McCall is a fine blues singer and he gets excellent support from the band.Catch Me is the highlight track for me with the band playing as a unit.

Gene R. Rankin

The Vintage Room
Well-produced, well-recorded, well-performed. Only weak song is "Mama" (which should have been left off). Good blues, maybe a little lacking in fire. Solid rhythm section, less-strong lead, good harp work. Worth buying, says I.

This is the best album that I've heard in a long time. I didn't expect anything less than that, being that it has the Dixon magic added to it. I close my eyes and I'm right back to when blues was at it's strongest point. Slice of That Pie, my favorite, you would've thought that Willie Dixon wrote it himself, but his grandson wrote it. I definitely recommend buying this CD....you love it, I guarantee it.

Amazing! I loved every song on this CD. Can't wait to see them perform live! Cash McCall is the best kept secret of the blues, and Alex writes just like his grandfather. I'm a huge Willie Dixon fan. The band is awesome and I'm so lucky to have bought this CD.

This is by far the best blues album that I've heard in years. I'm a huge Willie Dixon fan, and it reminds me so much of how he used to write. I love Cash McCalls vocals, and my favorite song on the album is Catch Me Before I Go. Helluva Time is also a great one. I would recommend this album to anyone who loves the authentic Chicago Blues sound!

Yeah love the album-it transports me across the Atlantic and brings back good memories of Chicago blues clubs.
