“Spirit of Justice” (2002)  offer stories from arsenic standards in water to Afghanistan, Iraq, Kate Harris, John Ashcroft, media, surveillance…This CD is filled with playful and forthright commentary. Not to be left out, Bill Clinton stars in the “Physical Relationship Blues.”  “That Was The Week Reprise” and “The Spirit of Justice” were Tom’s two winning songs at the South Florida Folk Festival.” “That Was The Week Reprise” was also a 3rd place award winner for “Folk Song of the Year” by Just Plain Folks International Awards. “Nike” was a JPF nomination for Spoken Word of the Year.

“The Mascot” issue divided a school district and is a perfect example of Tom’s ability to document local current events in song with biting humor and between the eyes poignancy.

Tom pays tribute to his mom with “75 Septembers of Love.”

Derrik Jordan violin, vocals, percussion, keyboard, & bass; Lui Collins – vocals; Dave McCurry - harmonica
