2002 soundtrack release from the acclaimed singer, songwriter and surfer. Also features performances from Greyboy, G.Love & Special Sauce, Ozomatli and others.
Jack Johnson is one talented man. When he's not surfing or recording laid-back, rootsy rock jams like those on his debut, Brushfire Fairytales, he's filming award-winning movies about surfing like the September Sessions. Oh, and naturally, he has a hand in its soundtrack, an eclectic and relaxing array of jam-band improvisation, bluesy licks, and jazz-flecked rhythms. Johnson's solo contributions, including a cover of Jimmy Buffett's "Pirate Looks at 40," are stripped-down acoustic numbers with as much understated grace as Jeff Buckley. Other artists opt for more adornment, like Ozomatli's percussive reggae/hip-hip fusion, the Bollywood funk horn rave-up "Ganges a Go-Go," and the hands-down highlight, Greyboy and Karl Denson collaborating on a hypnotic bite of modern jazz driven by funky, spring-fresh flute loops. Sublime may have been the forbearer of breezy oceanside atmosphere, but this fantastic soundtrack takes laissez faire vibes to new levels--and emerges as yet another building block in the foundation of Jack Johnson's rapidly emerging chill-out empire. --Annie Zaleski
Top Customer Reviews
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.

I read the reviews on here, and bought the CD based on them. It just goes to show that my opinion must be different than most of the others on here. Read morePublished on April 16 2004
It took me 4 months to convince myself to try the Sept.Sessions....I bought it last week. If I had to sum up the entire album in a word I'd say "variety". Read morePublished on Sept. 15 2003 by JD
