Album Notes
The Bossa Nova Beatniks' CD, "Moonlit Bossa" is their first release of all new material since the "Danger Bongo Crossing" CD of 1998.
The official release date is January 11, 2005.
The name, Bossa Nova Beatnik, was given to me a dozen years ago and has stuck with me even though my music comes from a more eclectic broader base than the name suggests.
I have often struggled with the name and find myself explaining the experimental nature of Bossa Nova to the fans of Tom Jobim and the good people of Brazil in an effort to justify the barrier busting nature of our creative process.
However, when all is said and done, a band that calls themselves Bossa Nova Beatniks really should have two sounds on their CD. First, they should have a Bossa on the album. (a Samba would be nice). Also, to ground the Beatnik end, the CD should have a guy who can really play the Bongos. The "Moonlit Bossa" CD delivers on both fronts and even includes a Samba. Tim Stapleton studied music in Miami in the land where Afro - Cuban music is a way of life. His bongo playing makes these recordings come to life and jump out of your speakers. Couple that with the rich and wonderful singing voice of Annie O'Hara and you will discover the finest Bossa Nova Beatnik music to date. Of course, the CD still explores eclectic territory keeping alive the claim that the Bossa Nova Beatniks are one of the most unique and original bands in New York.
I hope you find the music engaging and entertaining.
Thanks for listening,

Whole Lotta Soul
One of the best things that happens to me in my incarnation as a music writer is the arrival of news that Tom Gould has put together a new album. Even better is getting that album in my hands. Best yet is putting it in the player and hitting the continuous play button.
Gould, of course, is the driving force behind the eclectic collection of musicians who assemble under the Beatniks' moniker to interpret his similarly eclectic collections of songs. He proudly point to the inclusion of an actual Bossa (and a Samba!) on this one, but if Gould's about anything, he's about disabusing the listener of any preconceptions the name Bossa Nova Beatniks may offer. A little Bossa, sure, but a little bit country, a little bit rock n' roll and a whole lotta soul, too.

Tom Gould never fails to surprise, and the surprises he cooks up never fail to delight. It's no surprise at all, though, that he's done it again.
