The September Sessions Soundtrack is not a Jack Johnson record. There's an excellent cover of Buffet's Pirate Looks at 40, and then a different version of F-Stop Blues from Brushfire Fairytales. However, only hardcore Jack J. fans will notice the difference between the original and the one on SS.
The fact that Johnson is not all over this album is not something that retracts from the album's score. In fact, the acts that Jack decides to put on here add up to an incredibly cohesive album for just about any mood. Put this on when you're alone and in a bad mood, you'll be able to vibe along with the melodies. Put this on when you're out surfing or playing basketball with your friends, it's perfect music for the atmosphere.
Johnson is quickly building an incredible catalogue in all areas. Whether it's with his surfing films, their accompanying soundtracks, Brushfire Fairytales, or the upcoming On and On (which is every bit as good as BF), he is becoming the number one name in jam rock.
He isn't the only artist on this c.d.

Pretend that track one, 'A Pirate Looks at 40' (The Jimmy Buffet Cover by Jack Johnston) is the foyer of your home; It offers a little preview, a surmise of what to expect in the other rooms of where you live, what type of person you are, in an open, welcoming way. When you begin to listen to 'The September Sessions' you'll come to the realization quickly that...
...You've just been boarded.
The crew is a colorful--yet not unsavory--sort.
They like to share. ^^
Plan on taking a trip, settling in, and hearing about their jadedness, their experiences, you will feel a bit of chop in the waters. There's also sunshine and a few buried treasures. I liked the flow of the songs on this album, unexpected and unfamiliar. An adventure. I dug the jam session and drum circle vibe, the eternal-Summer-break-around-a-campfire feel. Jack Johnson may be more lost boy than pirate. :)
If you're a fan of Jack Johnson, if you liked his 'Thicker than Water' album, if you'd just like to hear a different arrangement of 'F-stop Blues', or if you've also found 'occupational hazards to be your occupations...' you most likely will not be disappointed with 'The September Sessions.

Not what I expected, but would have purchased it anyways just because Jack Johnson's name is on it. I enjoyed the two songs that actually had lyrics by Jack. The rest.. eh.. Read morePublished on December 19, 2011 by Bar
