Ok, so let's start this week with some wino songs !
Born J Riggins Jnr., Dixon began playing piano and singing as a child and in Texas he was exposed to a range of blues and gospel influences, as well as a little jazz and hillbilly.
In 1947 Dixon cut his earliest sides for the Supreme label. Playing piano and singing in the "jump" style of early rhythm-and-blues, he subsequently recorded for Aladdin, Modern and Specialty, and made early road forays with B.B. King and Ray Charles, whom he encouraged away from crooning and towards church-based styles.
In the fifties and sixties he was in constant demand.
But in the 1970's "Mr. Magnificent" dropped out of the music scene in favor of a quieter life back in Texas.
