Editorial Reviews


Musically best known for his role as leader of the Monk- and Mingus-influenced Lounge Lizards, actor/musician/painter/director John Lurie brought his vision to the Independent Film Channel with Fishing with John. This deadpan comedy show has Lurie taking city-boy buddies Tom Waits, Dennis Hopper, and Matt Dillon out for fishing and wildlife experiences and celebrating manliness. Though the soundtrack rarely sounds like the Lounge Lizards, Lurie's wide range of influences is felt as he collaborates with various musicians. "Flutter" is strong, with Lurie at home on soprano sax backed by African percussion. "Fish Dance" is a pretty vocal workout conducted by Lizards trumpet player Steven Bernstein. "Freezing Guitar" is an Eastern-flavored piece that features Lurie solo. "River of Men" includes a fine vocal by Tom Waits, recorded as Lurie and Waits paddle down a Jamaican river. It all makes for a quirky journey. --Aaron Tassano

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and beautiful March 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
John Lurie's musical style is so unique, and so appealing. This soundtrack beautifully setts the tone for the show, which is also amazing. Even without knowledge of the show, this soundtrack can be enjoyed by all. It has an interesting and wide mix of different styles, some humorous and others whimsical and enchanting. Pick up this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for fans June 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a must for fan of John Lurie. Up until recently I had never heard of Lurie nor his work with the Lounge Lizards. Simply put, it is facinating work. ``Fishing with John'' is a very very good album (I really liked #3) even if you are like me and have never seen the TV series. Is it on Video?

5.0 out of 5 stars a good review March 1, 2010
By rhea
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love the 'bizarre and wonderful' music featured in the show and so I had to buy this. But mostly, I have to give this great soundtrack a positive review to balance out that wackjob's 1 star review.
