Original score composed by Jack Johnson.
An interesting hodge-podge of tracks used in singer/songwriter/erstwhile beach bum Jack Johnson's 2000 surfing documentary of the same name, THE SEPTEMBER SESSIONS manages to convey a laid-back, groovy atmosphere that perfectly evokes the film's subject. The opening track, a live version of Jimmy Buffet's "Pirate Looks At 40" performed by Johnson himself, sets the tone for the entire album, establishing a melancholy mood that clearly resonates with the aging ex-champion wave rider.
Other highlights include an unusually soulful contribution from G. Love & Special Sauce and a vintage Indian Bollywood-esque track lifted from 1999's must-have BOMBAY THE HARDWAY: GUNS, CARS & SITARS compilation. The album's best track, however, is the other contribution from THE SEPTEMBER SESSIONS's main man; "F-Stop Blues," is a breezy, wistful delight worthy of Nick Drake or Tim Hardin, and makes a fitting conclusion to an album as warm and engaging as the pacific waters pictured on the disc's cover.
