This documentary highlights the jazz styling of John Lurie and the eight members of his band, The Lounge Lizards, as they perform fusion-style jazz in nightspots in the Latin quarter of Berlin. While the bulk of the film consists of musical numbers, the star does speak long enough to tell a political shaggy-dog story. Independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has cast the saxophone player in many of his films. Among the songs featured in his performances are an interpretation of John Coltrane's A Love Supreme and Bob Dylan's Rainy Day Women Nos. 12 & 35.
