Listen to an hour of music derived from Jim Jarmusch films – music which sets both the scene and a mood. There’s music by Jarmusch himself, in various incarnations of his instrumental rock bands Bad Rabbit and SQÜRL, along with music by Tom Waits, jazz-inflected music by John Lurie, and Ethio-jazz by Mulatu Astatke. Hear music from Only Lovers Left Alive, a collaboration between Jarmusch’s band SQÜRL and the Dutch lute player Jozef van Wissem. There’s also music by the “father of Ethio-jazz,” the living legend Mulatu Astatke, which was featured in the Jarmusch film Broken Flowers. Then, listen to music by “downtown New York icon of cool,” John Lurie - founder & leader of the Lounge Lizards, soundtrack composer, pioneering reality TV show star, and artist. From said reality TV show, “Fishing with John,” hear music from the episode where he took Jim Jarmusch out on a boat off of Montauk. Plus, music by Tom Waits from the original soundtrack to Jarmusch’s film, Night on Earth, and more.
