In Jarmusch’s America, the sounds of the past drift over the present, and America’s country, rockabilly, and R&B traditions are more than pop trends; they’re sacred languages.

An excellent sleazy shaker from John “Johnny D” Dixon’s new collection of vintage Phoenix music, “Sha-Boom Bang! Vintage Arizona Doo Wop, R’n’B, Soul & Funk: 1956-71.” The CD features 31 songs, extensive liner notes by Dan Nowicki, and rare photographs.

The CD is available at Zia Records, and via http://http://azmusicdude.com/.

For more information, listen to KJZZ’s Steve Goldstein interview Dixon about the collection and Phoenix’s musical heritage: http://bit.ly/1hUr1A1

Put together a SoundCloud playlist of songs I’m really digging: Mike Cooper on Paradise of Bachelors, Brigitte Fontaine & Alice Coltrane on Superior Viaduct, Ryley Walker on Tompkins Square, great new stuff from William Tyler and Wooden Wand, the Sanford Clark track from the Zia/Johnny D Record Store Day 45, and the new one from Wovenhand’s Deathwish Inc. debut (am I the only one getting some Lift to Experience vibes?).
