Best Local Jazz Artist

Rob Dixon

The "musical mayor of Indy" isn't a huge fan of his nickname, but Rob Dixon certainly deserves it: Name a jazz musician in town with whom saxophonist Rob Dixon hasn't collaborated, either as a sideman or equal partner. He's connected scenes by recording albums for Owl Studios with esteemed organist Melvin Rhyne (and thereby celebrating our Indiana Ave. tradition) and, more recently, with jammy drummer Todd Harrold (introducing the world of straight-ahead jazz to jam music). Speaking of Owl, Dixon also works A&R for the Indy-based jazz/jam label, creating opportunities for other Indy artists to record and distribute their work.
