Willie Dixon and the Four Jumps of Jive


The Big Three Trio – You Sure Look Good To Me

For the legendary Willie Dixon, the Big Three Trio was an important launching pad for a fantastic career. Pianist Leonard “Baby Doo” Caston and guitarist Bernardo Dennis (replaced after a year by Ollie Crawford) joined upright bassist Dixon to form the popular trio in 1946. Caston was just out of the service (where he’d played on U.S.O. tours during World War II); Dixon had been a conscientious objector. Dixon had previously worked with Caston in the Five Breezes and with Dennis in the Four Jumps of Jive.

OUTLINES-LISTEN TO THE DRUMS

Outlines – Listen to the drums
Outlines are long-time friends Jerome, Irfane and Jay1. Although the paths of life led the three members to interact – Jerome and Irfane went to school together – it is hip-hop culture that is responsible for their union. Indeed, while, in the early nineties, Jerome was breakdancing, both Irfane and Jay1 were writing graffiti. Jay1 has since then established himself as one of the finest French writers, collaborating with fashion designers (agnes b., 55 DSL, Maharishi, Takeo Kikuchi) and exhibiting in galleries from Berlin and Tokyo to London and NYC, either alone or with his crew, BadBC (Skki, Ash).
