Album Notes
"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 its 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

More Great Trop Rock from the Captain
A new twist on this CD, true stories set to music. The title track, Pirate's Confession and Port Royal are all based on historical events. But don't let that fool you, this CD is full of straight up Trop-Rock, Rock Steady and Rum is guaranteed to get the party started. Highly recommended by yours truly.

Great stuff!
This CD takes CQ to a new level. The music and production are great. Almost as good as seeing them live.


Take me to the islands
Very good CD. I purchased this completely based upon reviews that Captain Quint was in the Jimmy Buffett style of music. I am quite pleased and will be adding other Captain Quint CD's to my collection. Living in Ohio I don't to experience the islands first hand but popping this CD in the player at work helps take me there. It's a great listen!


If only it came with a complimentary pina colada...
As you may have noticed, the name Jimmy Buffett is all over this page. And it's fitting; CQ started as a Buffett tribute band, they still play mostly JB stuff live, and he's the best-known reference point to describe this stuff with. But starting with their first disc and more so with this one, the Quintsters have always shown their own distinct identity loud and clear. In addition to that smooth tropical steel-drum sound, this album blends in some African rhythms, a touch of Latin tango, plenty of Jamaican reggae, Americana blues... it's all one tasty jambalaya. At heart, these are a bunch of really fun guys who love telling stories and making people dance in the process.

So yes - if you want something to spin at that beach party, if you're a Buffett fan, OR if you're heartily sick of Buffett but wouldn't mind some good-timey tropical songs you haven't heard two million times already, then you want this CD. Bottoms up.

No "sophomore slump" here. Quint delivers.
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.

The first track, "Ballad of the Wooden Lady" evokes memories of sea chanties and Gordon Lightfoot.

The lyrics of the title track could have been written by Jim Hoehn, they're that good.

"Tortuga" is an instrumental track that compares favorably to "Pineapple Jam" and "High on Love" is just downright fun.

I could go on, but you get the general idea. It's impossible to pigeonhole these guys as a "Sounds Like ..." group. They just sound like, well they sound like Captain Quint!

We're pleased to have CQ on the Permanent Vacation Radio playlist.


Love it!
Just got the disc about a week ago and it hasn't come out of the player since! Great songs and awesome production work!
