JRobert’s song “Land of the Walking Tree” is featured in the Florida Humanities Councils CD “Voices of the Everglades Florida Humanities Council Store "Land of the Walking Tree" was written and dedicated to the efforts of the SW Florida Conservancy for their on-going efforts to preserve the Everglades for future generations of Floridians. Recorded in Mangrove Music Studios, it is part of a collection of "Magic Under the Mangrove" songs.
Lyrical, beautiful and haunted by a sense of a place unique to all the world, the music and stories collected on this very special CD celebrate the people, the animals, and the places collectively known as the Florida Everglades. As inimitable as the exotic landscape itself, this is the finest collection ever assembled of Florida songs, stories, and interviews about the Everglades. Available only from the Florida Humanities Council.

Click Here for The Blue Water Cruise Sails into Nautical Shops Story. "Blue Water Cruise" …Smooth Sailing Off the Charts!
A tapestry of violin, samba style guitar, and Trinidadian Steel Pan are interwoven throughout this music journey. "Blue Water Cruise is like water…it sweeps you out from where the rivers meet the sea and beyond all markers, buoys, and music genres into a deeper soundscape adventure."
Blue Water Cruise makes an excellent boat gift or Florida souvenir.
While anchored in the backwaters of a barrier island…early morning dolphin patrol the bay…huffing…puffing gently in the stillness.
Like ancient Calusa, tall families of roseate spoonbill scoot across spring-tide mud flat banks past barnacled mangrove roots… tannic-blackened waters mirror a rising sun…cumulus arrive over the Everglades horizon.
Myriad illusive channels snake around lighthouse shoals, before the safety of open seas…
"Takes me away to where I've always heard it could be… Just the wind & a dream to carry me…soon I will be free!"
Shimmering glass mosaic scattered in the sand of a coconut island…shuttled in on tropical waves…splashing, gurgling, and whispering…
"Coquina…coquina Girl, you're on my mind"
Island hopping into the lazy latitudes…
"I'm sad to say I'm on my way I won't be back for many a day…"
"Let's go ride the sea… No place on earth I'd rather be!"
Sloop John B
The Granddaddy of all sailing songs jams out!
Changes in Latitudes
Remember the first time you caught an earful of Jimmy Buffett music? …Our attitudes and latitudes may have changed since then…"but beach music, beach music, beach music…just plays on!"
One little change of heart may equal three hundred and sixty degrees of horizon… Every thought of you…sends me sailing off the charts!
A captain's heart is only as true as his compass.
…I catch a warm, wild ride just before the air turns cool and sweet.
Suddenly winds shift, and a squall sweeps in from the west…leaving just as suddenly as it came. Vibrant sunset rainbows melt over my shoulder into a pool of promises…
Pirate Looks at 40
No matter how I look at it, it just gets better!

Les McDowell-"Roads Les Traveled" CD
Now, here is a CD Les Listened to...but absolutely Great production!
www.JohnMcEuen.com of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band called me to play along with T.C. Carr and Lenny Austin for Les McDowell.
Les is a great Poet Americana, cowboy, trick roper, horse trainer, blacksmith, stagecoach builder...who writes great Florida stories. We musicians simply composed a Tone Poem to enhance Les' project.
John McEuen, of course has worked with Nitty Gritty Dirt Band for over 25 recording projects including "Circle Be Unbroken" Album. He also produced the music for my friend Chief Jim Billie's CD called "Alligator Tales."
You may still find a copy laying around WQYK radio ranch at www.wqyk.com if you speak with Martin Beecher and tell him JRobert sent you.
All proceeds from this CD benefit "Special Olypics-Florida" and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Youth Ranch.
I'm happy to be the little angel to come along and invite C.W. into my studio...and in so doing became an fully ordained "Conch Republic Royal Minstrel!"
www.CWColt.com has continued to produce to most Solid Ballads and Adventure music in South Florida for the past 15 years...has it really been that long?
I got to play fiddle, mandolin, harmonica, and boss him into driving up to Tennessee with all his empty bottles of Jack Daniels...then, I told him to convince those Sons of Whiskey Makers that his songs would someday make everybody Rich!
But did he listen to me? Hell, Yes! Now, we're all just sittin' down here in our own little Sub-Tropical Kingdom, waitin' for the Royalty checks to come driftin' in...and of course, ordering shots at the Round Table to support the Company.
Thanks, C.W. for trusting my ears...your songs are still Great!
