Swinging Sailor of Perryman
'The Swinging Sailor of Perryman' is Captain Quint's sophomore release. It picks up where Quint's 'trop rock' debut, 'Pineapple Jam', left off, but this time around the Captain has added lots of world music influences, including sounds from New Orleans, Jamaica, Trinidad, Africa, and Cuba. Quint also enlisted the aid of some top engineers, including Secret Sound's John Grant (basic tracking, same as on 'Pineapple Jam'), Shannon Follin of Omega Studios (mixing), and Nashville stalwart Jim DeMain (mastering). You may recognize DeMain as the man behind the board for Billy Joel, Nancy Griffith, Los Straitjackets, John Hiatt, and Jimmy Buffett's 'License to Chill'. INTERESTING FACT: The title track is based on the story of sea captain John Clark Monk, an almost mythical figure in Chesapeake Bay folklore. Maryland legend has long maintained that the eccentric Monk was buried by his ship's crew in keeping with his last request that his feet never again touch dry land. His coffin, which is an historical attraction in the town of Perryman, Maryland, was suspended from anchor chains, making Monk a true 'swinging sailor' QUOTES 'Every track is an absolute gem ... this is the best collection of music I've heard in a long time ... I predict this will be CQ's breakthrough album!' - Art Perry, One Particular Harbor, WKHS 90.5 FM, Radio Margaritaville 'Captain Quint's second CD, 'The Swinging Sailor of Perryman' is a total delight. The band shows it's versatility in moving effortlessly from one genre to another, and serves up a pleasing musical gumbo in the process.' - Thomas Fraser, Program Director, Permanent Vacation, Live365 Radio Network.
