After briefly living in Chicago, Luxion moved to Europe and was quickly integrated into the international jazz scene. Soon after arriving in Belgium in 1979, he was introduced to Chet Baker by local saxophone legend Jacques Pelzer.

This collaboration introduced him to musicians and audiences throughout Europe.

He has worked with Jackie Allen, Steve Allen, Ernest Dawkins, Diane Delin, Von Freeman, Bill Frisell, Fareed Haque, Marquis Hill, Sheila Jordan, Lee Konitz, Howard Levy, Kevin Mahogany, Claudio Roditi, Tony Scott, Woody Shaw, Archie Shepp, Ira Sullivan, Toots Thielemans, Denise Thimes and many more.
