The Flutterbys' 20-song original CD is titled "Jungle Jam", reflecting its many delightful animal songs, including the soon-to-be-classic "A Cow Who Likes To Whistle" (received an honorable mention in the 2009 International Songwriting Contest), which features special guest performances by Oscar-nominated actress Piper Laurie, folk-swing icon Dan Hicks , Al "Year-Of-The-Cat" Stewart, and award-winning whistler & voice artist (the "voice" of Woodstock in the Emmy-nominated Peanuts cartoon, "She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown"), Jason Victor Serinus! The other 19 songs are performed by Jill Carole and/or Paul Robinson, with charming cameos and guest spots by young friends.
"Jungle Jam" balances the joviality of the jungle rhythms with lullabies "Wish Upon A Fish" and "We Love Our Baby", as well as parent fantasy songs "We're Cleaning Up Our Room" and "Brush Them". Jill's "It's Your Birthday" was written by her at age eight as a birthday gift her mother, and 5-year old Jenna Herz gives an inspired performance as the child to Jill who plays mommy in the song.
Paul's sophisticated and delightful instrumental arrangements and guitar playing provide a lush landscape for both his and Jill's clever and intelligent lyrics. Children and parents alike will rejoice in the rich creativity of each song, and subsequent listens are certain to provide new discoveries and continued fun. Both Jill and Paul believe their first flight as The Flutterbys is their best, purest and most jungle-stompin' musical endeavor!
As Jill and Paul devote much of their lives to the recovery and support of Autism Spectrum Disorders, The Flutterbys will be donating a portion of the proceeds from "Jungle Jam" to Generation Rescue. Among Generation Rescue's most vocal supporters are Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey.
Both Jill Carole and Paul Robinson broke ground as pop musicians; Jill as an adult-alternative songwriter, and Paul as an amazing and versatile lead guitarist and songwriter. Paul has shared the stage with such legends as David Sanborn, Don Was, Bob Weir, Al Stewart and Dan Hicks. Jill was signed to UK's Mystic Records and has toured England, opening for The Zombies' lead singer, Colin Blunstone and Al Stewart.
