Dixon's work features open space, wide intervals that do not imply a specific key or mode, and dark backdrops owing to the use of two or more double bassists.

 Bill Dixon - Vade Mecum
Dixon's explanatory note for the album pinpoints the agency of the music: "all compositions are by Bill Dixon; the lines of Oxley, Parker, and Guy are their own." There was no printed or detailed spoken map for this recording.

 The History of Jazz Music. Bill Dixon: biography, discography, review, links
Free-jazz trumpeter Bill Dixon (1925) was more influential as an organizer (he conceived the first free-jazz festival, "October Revolution in Jazz", in 1964) than as a musician, but was actually one of the greatest musicians of free jazz, albeit a voluntary exile from the music industry.
Dixon's first album, Intents And Purposes (1967), released when he was already 42, included two lengthy workouts, the five-movement Metamorphoses 1962-1966 (october 1966) for a tentet (trumpet, trombone, alto, clarinet, English horn, cello, two basses, drums and percussion) and Voices (january 1967) for a quintet (trumpet, clarinet, cello, bass and drums).
Instead of using the music as a weapon, Dixon (who was also a painter) used it to create vast canvasses of organized sounds, using space and silence in a way that predated Chicago's "creative" school, and often caressing the atmosphere with haunting bass lines.
