The Roadhouse, (songs #1-7), describes how I felt as a teenager when I walked into Paul's country roadhouse. The piano was pounding out jazz, the 'bar' was buzzing, and the dance floor was filled with young people who couldn't get enough of each other.
Bobbo, (#8), is the song I wrote to celebrate the birth of my youngest son.
Jupiter by the Sea, (#9-16), is my vision of an area in Florida that is truly unique. It has a 140 year-old lighthouse, serpentine roads that follow the sea, an inlet that opens to the ocean and a restaurant that serves food in controlled chaos.
The Odyssey, (#17-23), was composed after my wife and I returned from a trip celebrating our 60th birthdays. We intended to follow the steps of Ulysses, but we also got waylaid. Instead we visited Positano, Ravello, Santorini, and Ephesus.
Travelogue, (#24-29), was written to reminisce about old friends and old places, beaches and hideaways.
