Early 90s experimental jazz trio consisting Soprano/Alto Saxophonist John Lurie (The Lounge Lizards), percussionist Billy Martin (Bob Moses, The Lounge Lizards, Medeski, Martin and Wood), and drummer Calvin Weston (The Lounge Lizards).
In February 2014 The Invention of Animals was released, a collection of out-of-print studio tracks and unreleased live recordings from the ’90s. Columnist Mel Minter says "this new release may require a reassessment of Lurie the saxophonist because the playing is engagingly fluid, inventive, and visceral — and well worth revisiting...The emotional immediacy of Lurie’s playing — and that of his partners — makes for riveting stuff. Think of his sax not so much as a musical instrument, but instead, as a window with a clear view of his soul." Jeff Jackson of Jazziz adds, "The resulting music is delicate, primal and utterly gorgeous."Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
