Fishing With John is music from Lurie's star-studded nature show parody and features many of the same musicians in a variety of instrumental combinations. Trios, duets and even string quartets make appearances as well as "The Fishing With John Singers" and vocal snippets courtesy of Lurie and Tom Waits. Often as engaging as his work with the Lounge Lizards, Fishing With John suffers from some conceptual over-ambitiousness. Still, there's plenty of good music here and between the two discs, we get a full picture of a real renaissance man operating at his creative peak.
