(excerpt from an original work titled "It".) The CD Neo-Jasouloetry is Rob's latest project that was inspired by good friends prodding him to do something new and different with the talents and original creative poetic performances that he has been wooing Sacramento audiences with since he came onto the scene in 2004. Fellow poets Michael Guinn and Terry Moore inspired Rob by being prime examples of pursiung your dreams. After soliciting the help of friend/Producer/Engineer Jerry Blake-Neo-Jasouloetry was born.
