Marti Jones and Don Dixon return to Natalie's after a national tour supporting Dave Mason. They have been singing together since the mid 80s, and with over 20 albums between them, they cover a lot of territory. In more recent years, they released a duet record called Living Stereo, while Marti's latest recording is You're Not the Bossa Me. Dixon also put out a new six song recording entitled I Lived in the Time of Organ Grinders.
Don Dixon recorded major-label albums with his college rock band called Arrogance, produced seminal albums by R.E.M., the Smithereens and Marti Jones; scored an MTV hit with "Praying Mantis;" released a string of clever-soulful solo albums and continues to do so. He has starred in an off-Broadway musical ("King Mackerel and the Blues Are Running"), played an embittered alcoholic Broadway composer in an indie film "Camp"); has written songs that have been recorded by Joe Cocker, Counting Crows, Ronnie Spector and Marti Jones; and has recently been touring bassist with longtime friend Mary Chapin Carpenter.
Marti Jones released a string of finely crafted solo albums on A&M and RCA that got rave reviews in Rolling Stone. She performed "Tourist Town" on the David Letterman show in 1988; made music videos with D.A. Pennebaker and Jesse Dylan, and has toured extensively around the US and Europe, including long stints with Chris Isaak and Richard Thompson.
