Dixie Blur (Lim. Edition green vinyl)

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Der kalifornische Singer-Songwriter und Multiinstrumentalist Jonathan Wilson verbindet auf "Dixie Blur" seine typisch komplexe Gitarrenmusik mit traditionalistischen Einflüssen aus Country, Bluegrass und Americana, die seine musikalische Früherziehung geprägt haben. Hauptinspirationsquelle für "Dixie Blur" war Wilsons Heimweh während der vergangenen Roger-Waters-Tour, dessen Gitarrist er ist. Exemplarisch verdeutlichen das die Zeilen des Songs "69 Corvette": "I still think of Carolina sometimes. I miss the family. I miss that feeling. I miss home". Demnach ist "Dixie Blur" das bisher persönlichste der sieben Soloalben von Jonathan Wilson. Die Hörer bekommen hier einen deutlichen Eindruck davon, wie sich Heimat für den 45-jährigen anfühlt. Neben seiner Tätigkeit als Solomusiker und in Roger Waters Band arbeitet Wilson weiterhin als Produzent musikalischer Hochkaräter wie Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty oder Folk-Legende Roy Harper.


The album was cut in only six days. "It was so fast it was a blur." hence the title, dixie blur. "And there really is a magic that occurs when musicians play together in a room and create that one consistent thing in time, something is created by the collective energy that is impossible to recreate otherwise," says Wilson. With Wilson's longtime friend Pat Sansone of Wilco producing, Wilson and the band recorded in studio a at the sound emporium, the late country maverick Cowboy Jack clement's studio. The musicians included Nashville's premier session players including bass player Dennis Crouch, russ pahl on pedal steel, multi-instrumentalist Jim hoke, and world renowned fiddle master Mark O'Connor. Working with this Nashville band gave Wilson the same kind of feeling he had as a Kid, strumming along with those bluegrass bands. "There's something about this level of musicianship, they've been in so many sessions. It was fun to play some of the more stoner canyon-ey tunes for this crack session band and watch them write up their special Nashville charts with their numbers, symbols and Diamonds… they call it 'Hillbilly Arithmetic' Over there….
