Voice Of Chunk – The Lounge Lizards

The weird music of New York’s Lounge Lizards is exactly what I need this morning to help with the cobwebs (a looming deadline has me sitting at this danged computer waaaaay too much the past several days).

If you’ve never heard John Lurie‘s cool blend of jazz, blues noir and ambient flow, you owe it to yourself to check ’em out. A unique and underappreciated gem of the jazz world.

Plus, they’ve had both Arto Lindsay and Marc Ribot taking the guitar chair. You can’t go wrong with that!

    I’m sad to say I don’t have any Lounge Lizards albums – but it sounds like I need some, that’s for sure. By chance, is Steve Bernstein on this album? I know he’s worked with them on something, but I’m not sure what . . .

    no Steve Bernstein.

    John Lurie – alto and soprano sax
    Roy Nathanson – alto and tenor
    Curtis Fowlkes – trombone
    Marc Ribot – guitar, trumpet
    Evan Lurie – piano
    EJ Rodriguez – percussion
    Erick Sanko – bass
    Douglas Bowne – drums

    if you don’t have any Lounge Lizards i think the place to start is “Live in Tokyo. Big Heart”.
