On a Rolling Ball

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Although their reputation would suggest a Phish-like band of jam-happy virtuosos, the Gabe Dixon Band prove to be a worthy heir to Ben Folds Five on their full-length debut. Hinging on the soulful voice of their namesake, the band writes passionate chamber pop that brings to mind Sting's early-'90s jazz experiments but with boundless energy instead of a middle-aged reserve. Dixon's awesome piano work dominates, but the rest of the band whips up everything from sensual pop to delicate balladry with a distinct vigor. Fun, touching, and rarely too flashy for their own good, the Gabe Dixon Band deliver a true winner with On a Rolling ...

    Music for people who love...music

    Quick! What do you get when you mix four talented young men with four unique musical backgrounds, add a healthy dose of funk, a bushel of youthful enthusiasm, and loads of talent? The Gabe Dixon Band. Alright, that description was far cheesier than such a wonderful group deserves, but once you hear this album you'll be able to understand my cheerful exuberance. Deftly hopscotching from jazz to rock to blues to bluegrass, with some Latin inspiration and smoky soul thrown in for good measure, this CD is like the best gourmet meal. It uses only the finest ingredients, which are stunning solo but better together, it puts together several old things in a new and appealing way, it pleases all the senses, and it fills you up but leaves you anxiously anticipating the next course. With solid muscisianship backed by strong lyrics about life and love, the only thing that could possibly top the Gabe Dixon Band's major label debut is the GDB's live show.
